Acctgchequebook.JPGProperty Taxes

Properties are divided into seven standard property classes established by the province. These include:

  • residential/farm
  • multi-residential
  • commercial
  • industrial
  • pipeline
  • farmlands
  • managed forests

Each tax class may have sub-classes and all may be taxed at a different rate.

Once the Counties levy requirements have been determined for the current year, tax rates are calculated for each of the property tax classes. The property tax bill is produced by the lower tier (township) and is comprised of an upper tier (Counties), lower tier (township) and education rate (provided by Ministry of Education). The sum of these tax rates is then multiplied by your assessment to determine your current year property taxes.
