Budget and Property Assessment

Property Assessment

You may consult the municipal Tax Roll for any property in the Township of Potton directly on the Assessor’s webpage, the firm J.P.Cadrin & Ass. Inc. by clicking here ; you will need to provide the required coordinates for the property sought.
* You will be directed to another site than Potton; please note that the property assessment and the destination portal are neither a municipal responsibility of the Township of Potton.

The firm Jean-Pierre Cadrin and associates, mandated by the MRC of Memphrémagog to develop the municipal assessment rolls, is submitting the new roll for the Canton of Potton this fall.
Citizens of the Municipality are invited to watch a short video explaining that the process is governed by provincial standards. This video is available in French with the possibility of English subtitles: https://aemq.qc.ca/quest-ce-que-levaluation-municipale/

Property Transfer Tax

The Property Transfer Tax is a tax that all municipalities must collect from the new purchaser of a property. There are also other types of real estate transactions (e.g. very long term leases) for which this tax will be charged. The tax is collected by the municipality where the property is located. The Property Transfer Tax applies to the purchase or construction of a new dwelling (purchase of the building and the land or the land only).

CALCULATION OF THE PROPERTY TRANSFER TAX

Since January 1, 2022, the amount of this tax is :

0.5% for the first $53,200;
1.0% between $53,200 and $266,200
1.5% between $266,200 and $500,000
2.0% between $500,000 and $700,000
3.0% for amounts exceeding $700,000

For example, for a house valued at $92,000:

The first $53,200 will be taxed at 0.5% ($266);
The remaining $38,800 will be taxed at 1.0% ($388);

The total transfer tax will therefore be $654.
