Residents in every municipality are required to pay municipal property taxes.
Your property tax is calculated by taking the assessed value of your property (as established by the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation or MPAC) and multiplying it by the approved tax/mill rate.
There are three parts to the tax rate:
Different tax rates for different classes of property and the main classes include residential, multi-residential, commercial and industrial.
The municipal tax rate is determined after Municipal Council and the Region of Durham approve their budgets and the Province of Ontario establishes the Education Rate. The tax rate is applied to the property's current value assessment (CVA) to determine the amount of property taxes to be levied.
For more information about your property taxes or the assessed value of your home, visit the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) website.
