Components of Tax

The taxes that we collect from you are comprised of:

  1. 1.  Municipal Taxes - The tax rate to cover the costs of supplying municipal services that is based on the annual budget.  Revenues from Provincial grants, user fees, and other sources of revenue are deducted from the total expenditures resulting in a final amount that needs to be raised through taxation.
  2. 2.  County Taxes - Taxes collected on behalf of the County of Middlesex to support services such as housing, emergency services, etc.  Questions or concerns regarding the County tax rates should be directed to the County of Middlesex.
