Property tax is the largest and most important revenue source for municipalities. Property taxes are calculated by multiplying the property's assessment by the tax rate of the specific property class. SDG Counties and the six SDG local municipalities calculate their individual tax rates and the Ontario Ministry of Finance determines the annual education rates. Information on Ontario's property tax system is available here http://www.mah.gov.on.ca/Page10240.aspx
The Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) is responsible for determining a value on all properties in Ontario. The MPAC website contains assessment information for your property and answers to frequently asked questions.
Approved budgets, financial statements and other documents are available in PDF format from the Financial Documents Page. If the document you’re looking for isn’t listed, please contact the Financial Services Department at FinanceAccounts@SDGcounties.ca.
