How Your Property Taxes Are Calculated

The amount of property tax payable on land and/or buildings is the result of a calculation based on four factors:

  • The market value assessment of your property (provided by MPAC (Municipal Property Assessment Corporation)
  • The tax class into which your property falls
  • The tax rate for the applicable tax class (set annually by City Council)
  • The tax rate for Education portion of that class (set annually by the Province on Ontario)

Black CalculatorProperty taxes are calculated using the Current Value Assessment of a property and multiplying it by the combined municipal and education tax rates for the applicable class of property. Final Budget Approval took place at the regularly scheduled Council Meeting on Monday, December 11, 2017.   The 2018 Education rates have not yet been provided by the Province.
