Taxes are based on the current market value/assessment of your property. If you have a question concerning your property assessment, please call the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation at 1-866-296-6722. See also MPAC 2020 Year End

At the beginning of each year Council reviews the financial position of the municipality. They also review proposed projects combined with the community needs to determine the amount of revenues that must be generated to cover the expenses, as every municipality must have a balanced budget (revenues equal expenditures). Property taxes are the main source of revenue for municipalities.

The total amount of tax revenue required is then divided by the total property assessments for the municipality and thus a “tax rate” is determined. The rate is applied to the assessment value to come up with the current taxes for the ratepayer. For example, if a home is assessed at $100,000 and the tax rate is $.012003, the taxes for the year would be $100,000 x .012003 which equals $1,200.30.

Third party Agencies, Boards and Committees (ABC's) also submit their budget requirements for the year. These ABC's include the North Bay-Parry Sound Health Unit, the schools boards, District Social Service Board, etc. Then Council uses the combined assessed values of all properties to determine the tax rate.
