Burlington City Council approves property tax hike
Published May 8, 2021 at 4:23 pm
Burlington residents will have to reach a little deeper into their pockets to pay their taxes this year.
Burlington City Council has approved a 2.5 per cent tax hike.
The 2021 Tax levy bylaw, which reflects the budget processes of both Halton Region and the City, works out to a total of $19.02 for each $100,000 or urban residential assessment.
With the ongoing pandemic and financial stresses that come with that, City Council also approved a 2021 COVID-19 Property Tax Deferral Payment Plan.
This allows eligible property owners who are unable to pay their property taxes by the regularly scheduled due dates to apply to defer taxes under a pre-authorized payment plan.
For more information the payment deferral plan, visit www.burlington.ca/propertytax.
The final tax bills will be mailed to residents in late May.
