Tax rates

Based on the County’s annual budget, and the returned assessment roll, tax rates are established and billed against the rateable assessment for each property. Periodically, the County receives notifications from the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation and the Assessment Review Board to reduce and/or increase property assessment. After receiving the notification, Revenue & Tax Services then adjusts the tax account and notifies the applicable property owner accordingly. Adjustments involving current-year assessments are made only after the final billing.

Reassessment occurs every four years at which time the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) sends a Notice of Assessment to each property owner. Assessment increases are phased in over four years. If you have any questions regarding this notice please contact MPAC directly at 1-866-296-6722, or their website at

Please see the Property Assessment page for more detailed property assessment information.

Education tax rates

Education tax rates are regulated by the Province. All school support within the tax class is billed using the same tax rate. For example, regardless of your school support, all residential properties for the RT tax class pay the same education rate. The tax class is defined by:

  • EP – English Public
  • FP – French Public
  • ES – English Separate
  • FC – French Catholic
  • N – Not designated for any specific school support but rather is divided amongst the various boards based on student population percentages provided by the Province
The codes for school support are indicated on your tax bill along with the Tax Class. For example:
  • RTEP – Residential Taxable Full English Public
  • RTES – Residential Taxable Full English Separate

Calculating your property taxes

To calculate the approximate amount of your property taxes, take your Assessed Property Value and multiply it by the appropriate rate. For example, for a property valued at $100,000, multiply by the tax rate of 0.0119641:

  • $100,000 x 0.0119641 = $1,196.41
