Taxation

The assessment roll comes from the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation [MPAC]. The information included in this roll is then used to determine tax rates and to levy taxes. Tax rates are determine and taxes levied after the City prepares and Council adopts an annual budget of estimated revenues and expenditures.

Applications for tax deferrals for low income seniors and low income persons with disabilities must be made prior to September 30th each year. There are restrictions in income earned, age and assessment related tax increases which leads to qualification for the deferral. Deferred taxes must be paid when there are any registered title changes.
