The assessment rolls tabled on September 14, 2016 that came into force on January 1, 2017 apply to the 2017, 2018 and 2019 financial years. The most recent rolls (2020-2021-2022), which were tabled on September 11, 2019, will come into force on January 1, 2020.

The property assessment roll presents an inventory of all the property located across a municipality. An assessment roll is drawn up for each of the 16 reconstituted municipalities within the Montréal agglomeration.

It contains a variety of information used to identify and describe the use and physical characteristics of each building. It also identifies the owner and indicates the value of each building, regardless of its nature, on the basis of its actual or market value.

The assessment roll is used to calculate municipal and school taxes. It makes it possible to distribute the tax burden between real estate owners.

A new assessment roll is tabled every three years in order to adapt to changing real estate market conditions and update the tax base for property.
