How property taxes are calculated

  • property taxes are calculated by multiplying  the portioned assessed property value by the mill rate
  • the mill rate is the tax rate; 1 mill = 1 tenth of 1 cent, or $1 per thousand dollars of assessed property value
  • assessed property value is the market value of property determined by the Provincial Assessment Branch based on prevailing local real estate market conditions
  • portioned assessment value is then determined by multiplying the assessed value by a rate of 45% for residential property and 65% for commercial property

Property tax calculation – 2022 (using example of $200,000 assessed value)

Residential: (assessed value $200,000)/1,000 x 45% x 53.905 = $4,851

Commercial: (assessed value $200,000)/1000 x 65% x 59.496 = $8,066
