I am sure everyone received their new MPAC Property Assessment that states the value of your property has gone up $10,000 in the past 4 years? If you own more than 10 acres of land and enter your property in the Managed Forest Tax Incentive Program, your taxes will go down instead of up!!!!! Depending on which Township you live in you could save between $300.00 to $1000.00 per year.

Vacant Land Roll Numbers and Waterfront Property saves a full 75% off your current taxes.

The Managed Forest Program evolved from the old Woodlands Improvement Act program run by the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources in the 1980’s. The Managed Forest Tax Incentive Program (MFTIP) is designed to encourage landowner participation in natural resource stewardship on private forest land in Ontario. Check MNR’s Web site under this link for more information Managed Forest Tax Incentive Program (MFTIP) Guide (PDF, 505 KB 11 pages).
You can qualify for the program very easy even if you just cut firewood or build walking trails, feed wildlife, hunt etc. The deadline for new plans each year is June 30th. Lakeside Forestry has written over 250 plans since 1997 and saved area landowners $1000.00 of dollars in property taxes. Plans for small acreage’s 50 acres or less are only $600.00 and plan cost is almost always covered by the first years tax savings.
