Council approves 2019 Tax Levy Bylaw

April 26, 2019—Burlington City Council approved the 2019 Tax Levy Bylaw at its meeting on April 25, 2019. The bylaw allows the City to bill 2019 property taxes and set payment due dates for final tax bills on June 20 and Sept. 20, 2019.

The 2019 Tax Levy Bylaw reflects the budget processes of both the City and Halton Region. The province provides the education tax rates. The overall tax increase is 1.96 per cent or $15.08 for each $100,000 of urban residential assessment. Tax impacts will vary by property based on actual changes in the assessed value of the property relative to others.
