A man who built an apartment building on a vacant lot in 2012 sought our help with MPAC regarding the adjusted assessment value of his property. MPAC sent the man three notices within weeks of each other, covering two four-year assessment cycles – 2009-2012 and 2013-2016. He filed a request for reconsideration using MPAC’s form for 2013-2016, and included a letter asking for reconsideration of the 2012 tax year as well. It wasn’t until 2015 that he realized that his settlement with MPAC did not cover 2012 – but by then it would not reopen his file. After our staff escalated the case to senior MPAC officials, his request was successful and MPAC helped him obtain a property tax refund from his municipality for the 2012 tax year.
