Property taxes are a combination of the Township's tax levies as well as the County's and Education tax levies. The levies are calculated based on the value of your property and the tax rate for the applicable class of property. See tax rates for all property classes.

Property value:

The value of your property assessment is determined by the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC). MPAC is an independent body established by the Ontario Property Assessment Corporation Act.

Education tax rate:

This rate is set by the Province of Ontario under the Education Tax Act, regulation 400/98. Taxes collected are remitted to the local school board you support.

County Tax Rate:

This rate is set by the County of Frontenac and is remitted to the County to support their role in supplying various services.

Municipal Tax Rate:

The tax rate to cover the costs of supplying municipal services is based on the Township council's adoption of the annual budget. Services such as waste management, public works, fire and emergency management, planning, building inspection, parks and facilities maintenance and cultural and recreational programs are provided through this rate.
