Will I pay more taxes?
Your taxes are based on the assessed value of your house and the tax rate set by Town Council. You won't know if your taxes have increased until your assessment has been completed and the tax rate has been set.
How are taxes calculated?
Your total property tax is made up of a municipal levy, a provincial education levy, and a senior's housing levy. The municipal, provincial education and senior's housing levy are based on the assessed market value of your property. For municipal taxes, each properties' assessed value is divided by 1,000 and multiplied by the tax rate to determine that property's municipal tax levy. The tax rate is set each year by Town Council. Please click the following link for the Tax Rate Bylaw.
Municipal tax + Provincial Education tax + Seniors Housing tax = Your Property Taxes. The Provincial Government sets the education levy and the municipality is required to collect this tax on behalf of the province
