Tax Calculation involves the following:

Tax Residential Rate + Education Rate + OPP fee per property.

  • The Residential Tax Rate is the ONLY rate municipalities have control over BUT it is based on MPAC property assessments which municipalities have NO control over.
  • For the purpose of the calculation below, both tax rates (residential and education) have been combined to give you the result in the calculation below.
  • The OPP fee is a FLAT fee collected by the municipality for fees charged by the OPP. For 2022, this fee has been determined BY OPP to be $319.39 per property.
  • When taking into account the calculation below based on your property value, you MUST add the OPP fee to get the FULL amount payable to Markstay-Warren.
