Treasury and Taxes
The Treasury Department is responsible for all municipal funds.
Taxes are billed twice per year. Each bill has stubs for two installments.
Payments may be made through telephone banking, online banking, pre-authorized withdrawal and by debit card. We do not accept credit cards. You can register for paperless billing by emailing your account number, name, and email address to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some of our subdivisions are on municipal water systems. Meters are read and billed monthly. Rates are based on a sliding scale.
What Is MPAC?
The Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) is an independent, not-for-profit corporation funded by all Ontario municipalities. Their role is to accurately assess and classify all properties in Ontario according to the Assessment Act and regulations established by the Ontario Government.
In 2016, every property owner in Ontario received a Property Assessment Notice from MPAC updating the value of their property based on a valuation date of January 1, 2016. The assessment will be applicable to the 2017-2020 property tax years.
2016 updates to your property's assessed value
In 2016, the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) is updating the assessed value of ever property in Ontario. All properties will have a legislated valuation date of January 1, 2016. These values will be used by Mono to calculate property taxes for the 2017-2020 property tax years.
Residential property owners in Mono can expect to receive their Property Assessment Notice starting July 25th, 2016. Notices for business properties and farms will be mailed in the fall of 2016.
When you receive your Property Assessment Notice, review it. No further action is required on your part unless you have questions or you disagree with your assessed value and/or classification.
If you have questions, or would like to learn more about how MPAC assessed your property and compare it to others in your neighbourhood, visit aboutmyproperty.ca. You can also review market trends for your municipality and file a Request for Reconsideration. Your unique Roll Number and Access Key are included on your 2016 Property Assessment Notice.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
The following Q&As will help answer questions that many property owners have about the 2016 Assessment Update.
Pre Authorized Payment Plan
Residents may choose one of two options for their pre authorized payment plan for property taxes. They may pay by installment due date or on a monthly payment plan.
Monthly Payment Plan
Your Interim Tax Bill will be divided into six equal installments which will be withdrawn on the 15th of each month from January to June. The Final Tax Bill will be apportioned in the same manner and withdrawn from your bank account on the 15th of each month from July to December.
If you join the plan after there have already been withdrawals for the year we will divide the amount owing by the number of months remaining in which to cover that bill. For example, if you join in March but after the 15th your remaining balance will be divided into three payments and withdrawn from April to June.
You may, optionally, elect to pay the missed installments by cheque in order to lower the subsequent withdrawals.
Supplemental Tax Bills
Should you receive a supplemental tax bill for added assessment, for example a new sunroom, this amount will be factored into the remaining withdrawals. Again, should you wish to pay these amounts outside of the plan you may. If your Supplemental is for multiple years or for an unusually large amount you may contact the Tax Clerk to discuss a payment plan.
A pre authorized payment plan is also available for water billings. The only option available for water customers is to have payments withdrawn on the billing due date. You are able to receive paperless billing for Water bills. To register for paperless billing by email your account number, name, and email address to email@example.com.

A service charge of $I0.00 will be added to your account for any returned items. The missed payment, plus the charge, will be added to the next withdrawal or may be replaced outside of the plan. Should more than one item be returned, your payment plan will be discontinued.
Should you have any questions concerning preauthorized payment of taxes or water, please contact Cathy Crawford, Tax and Water Clerk at 519.941.3599 ext. 223.
