Tax Rates/Calculate Tax Bill


Your tax bill is determined by multiplying your property's assessed value by the tax rate for your property class. Your tax bill identifies your property class and its assessed value. The Province determines your property's assessed value and your Municipal Council approves the tax rates. On your tax bill, the tax rates are broken down into Town, Region, Waste Management and School Board rates. The tax rates are calculated based on total taxes to be levied in Fort Erie in any tax year.
