Property tax, more commonly known as “municipal taxes”, constitutes the main source of revenue for Quebec municipalities. It is mainly composed of the general property tax, calculated based on the assessment of properties, and rates for waterworks and residual materials management services, in accordance with the provisions of the Municipal Taxation Act. It is through this contribution of income that municipalities can develop and equip themselves with infrastructure as well as services to the population.
The tax invoices were mailed on February 23, 2023 to the owners registered on the assessment roll. Tax rates are determined annually by the Municipality's operating budget, which is adopted by the municipal council during the month of December of the previous year.
In 2023, the property tax rate for the fiscal year is established as follows:
Residual class: $0.4535 per hundred dollars of valuation;
Non-residential category: $0.558 per hundred dollars of assessment;
Buildings with six or more units: $0.4935 per hundred dollars of assessment;
Registered agricultural operation: $0.4535 per hundred dollars of valuation;
Industrial class: $0.5635 per hundred dollars of valuation;
Forestry class: $0.4535 per hundred dollars of assessment;
Share of the MRC de la Vallée-de-la-Gatineau: $0.112 per hundred dollars of assessment.
It is necessary to add to property taxes the rates for household waste, fire safety and the Sureté du Québec (Regulation 2023-001).
