2017 Property Tax Rates are increasing in Ward 1

On Wednesday April 12, City Council approved the 2017 Budget that will see an average property tax increase of 4.5% in Ward 1.  Aidan worked hard to keep the increase as minimal as possible while still maintaining all City Services. 

It is important to let you know that Ward 1 has one of the highest tax increases in Hamilton due to the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC) assessed land values.  To learn more about the MPAC Assessment and how it relates to your property tax, click here.
