General Tax Information

Pie Chart of where taxes are spent by percentage in 2014

 
  Your final property tax bill is made up of three main components:

 

  1. Education taxes - This tax rate is set by the Province of Ontario and remitted to the local school board you support.

  2. Municipal taxes - The tax rate to cover the costs of supplying municipal services is based on city council's adoption of our annual budget. Revenues from provincial grants, user fees and other sources are deducted from the total expenditures, resulting in a final amount that needs to be raised through taxation.

  3. County taxes - A portion of the tax bill for all residents of County of Lambton goes back to the County to support their role in supplying various services including Ontario Works, Social Housing, Library and Cultural Services and Land Ambulance.
