Oakville 2025 budget tax increase

Brampton residents won’t see their property taxes increase in 2022.

During a Budget Committee meeting, Council unanimously approved a motion to freeze property taxes once again.

This marks the fourth consecutive year property taxes in Brampton will not have increased.

The proposed budget, which was released in November, included recommendations from staff to raise property taxes by 2.7 per cent.

This would have resulted in an average increase of $142 in taxes per household in 2022.

However, due to the fact many residents are still experiencing financial hardship due to the pandemic, Council passed a motion that would result in no increase to property taxes again next year.

Despite the fact they haven’t increased since 2018, residents in Brampton still pay some of the highest property taxes in the GTA.

Brampton residents pay more in property taxes than residents of Toronto, Mississauga, Caledon, Halton Region, and York Region—only residents of Durham Region pay more in property taxes in the GTA.
