Tax commitment complete


The value of your property is one of the key variables in determining your tax bill, the other being the tax rate. The tax rate will not be finalized until the end of August, as there are a number of factors still in motion. However, based on the information we have now the tax rate will be decreasing between 12% and 14%. Your final tax bill is determined by multiplying your property’s value by the tax rate. While residential property values have increased, the decrease in the tax rate means that your property tax bill will not increase by the same percentage as your value.
