the number of bedrooms affects the assessment. same with the finished basement areaTiberius wrote: ↑Nov 9th, 2012 10:04 amDoes anyone know if the count of bedrooms has an impact on an MPAC Assessment?? I just noticed on the AboutMyProperty site, they show my home as being a 4 bedroom, when it's only a 3 bedroom. As I understand it, anything in the basement doesn't count for those stats... The square footage doesn't really change, but I'm curious what that might do to the MPAC valuation... At least arguing that a "fact" about the property is wrong than just arguing over "valuation".... but I had to do this when I first moved in when they got the homes first assessment wrong (they calculated the square footage wrong by 500 feet.... it made a huge difference in the valuation).
And another mistake... they list basement area to be equal to the main floor area - but the basement area should exclude the 2 car garage square footage... come on... how hard is this people??
Why can't they just get things right??
file a RfR and ask them to change the data they have on records
re who is to blame, I blame the city. that's where your money goes
