Customer Care

Property Taxes are levied twice a year by an Interim and Final Notice. Interim Bills are usually sent in April with payment due in June and Final Bills are typically sent out in August with payment due in November.

  • Taxes are generally calculated by multiplying the tax rate by the assessed value on the property.
  • Property Valuation Services Corporation (PVSC) determines the assessment value of a property.
  • Council determines the residential and commercial tax rates.


Calculate Your Taxes

Residential properties: Assessment value (on assessment notice and tax bill) ÷ 100 x residential tax rate = Residential Property Tax

Commercial properties: Assessment value (on assessment notice and tax bill) ÷ 100 x commercial tax rate = Commercial Property Tax
