How do I calculate my residential municipal taxes?

To calculate your residential municipal taxes for 2019, use the following formula and rates, consult our Tip Sheet for Understanding your Tax Notice, or, use our simple Residential Property Tax Calculator.

Step 1: Determine your total land assessment

Taxable Land Assessment + Taxable Improvement Assessment = Total Assessment


Step 2: Use the formula

  • Total Assessment x Mill rate x Residential mill rate factor / 1,000 = taxes
  • Taxes + Base tax + Health levy + Infrastructure levy =  Total residential municipal taxes

Mill Rate – 9.0 mills
Residential Mill Rate Factor – 0.720
Residential Base Tax – $750.00
Health Levy  – $100.00
Infrastructure Levy – $200.00

Example


Taxable Land Assessment              = 6,000.00
Taxable Improvement Assessment = 65,000.00
Total Assessment                           = 71,000.00

Assessment x Mill rate x Mill rate factor / 1,000 = taxes

71,000 x 9.0 x 0.720 / 1,000 = 460.08
$460.08 – Taxes
+$750.00 – Base Tax
+$100.00 – Health Levy
+$200.00 – Infrastructure Levy
=$1,510.08 Total Residential Municipal Taxes
