WHAT INFORMATION IS ON THE PROPERTY TAX STATEMENT AND WHAT DOES IT MEAN?
There are 2 principle factors that determine the amount of Property Tax.
1. ASSESSMENT - Market Value of your property based on 2 years prior. The assessment is determined by the Provincial Assessment Office.
2. MILL RATE - Determined by the Municipality when the current year's budget is developed.
Each individual School Division determines their own mill rate that they will charge the property owners. The Municipality is responsible for collection this money and than remitting it to the School Division in accordance with Provincial Legislation. For questions regarding school taxes contact your local School Division office.
