Your total property tax bill provides for more than just the cost of city services. Like the city, Halton Region prepares a budget each year, with a large part of their operating expenditures funded through property taxes. The Province determines education tax rates.
The city's portion of the overall 2016 residential tax bill is 42.5 cents of every tax dollar and the remaining 57.5 cents goes to Halton Region and the Province of Ontario for education taxes.
The city considers it very important for taxpayers to understand what city services they receive for their property tax dollars. For 2016, each $100,000 of an urban residential assessment amounts to approximately $371 in property taxes.
