Borough taxes

Boroughs will levy two types of taxes: one concerning services and the other concerning capital expenditures. All types of immovables are charged the same rate. 

Tax concerning services
A borough council may, by virtue of powers vested in it by Charter of the Ville de Montréal, metropolis of Québec levy a property tax or require compensation for taxable properties situated in its borough, in view of increasing the levels of service offered.

Tax concerning capital expenditures

Since 2005, the borough councils have had the power to adopt borrowing by-laws for expenditures identified in their respective three-year capital works programs that fall under local authority. This power is defined in the Charter of the Ville de Montréal. The owners of taxable properties situated in such boroughs are responsible for repaying the loans. In 2020, the income of this tax finances the refund of the loans of works made from 2005 to 2018.

To learn more about the borough’s priorities for 2020, please read the budget documents (french only).
