Tax Classes

All properties in Ontario are assigned property tax classifications by MPAC. The classifications are 3 or 4 alpha/numeric codes and each letter/number has a specific meaning.

The first letter in your tax class = Realty Tax Class.
The second letter (or number) in your tax class = Realty Tax Qualifier.
The 3rd and/or 4th letters in your tax class = Tax School Support Direction Code

Where the School Support indicates "N" this means that Education tax is still paid but the Province directs Municipalities as to how the support is divided between the various Boards.  This code only applies to properties in the business classes.
