Snow removal, sports and recreation, garbage removal, police services,
public transit, water purification; these services are all of direct
benefit to you. Of course, you also contribute, through your taxes, to the
cost of providing these public services. The property tax is used to
maintain and improve the quality of life in your community. It is
determined on the basis of the assessment of a group of properties,
including yours. The value of each property is entered on the assessment
roll. The most recent assessment rolls are the 2011 rolls deposited on
September 15, 2010, coming into force on January 1, 2011, for
the fiscal years 2011-2012-2013.
It should be noted that, whatever the change in value of a property
when filing a new roll, it is impossible to determine the amount of taxes
to pay for the next fiscal year from this roll. We have to wait until the
adoption of the municipal budget in December, to know the fiscal measures
and the tax rates that will be applied to the new assessments.
