Tax Ratios & Fees

Council Motion 21-G-134 established the tax rates to be used in determining the municipal portion of your 2021 property tax bill. The motion also established the tax due dates for the final two installments for all properties.

Avoid Interest Charges! Taxpayers are encouraged to pay their bills by the due date to avoid the 1.25% penalty and interest charge applicable to late payments. We suggest taxpayers explore the many payment options available. If you missed a payment or were late and assessed a penalty, there will be a notation on your final bill to contact Service Barrie in regards to account arrears.

The following tax rate schedule is the combined tax rate for both the municipal and education levy for 2020. For residential property taxpayers, the amount of your final tax bill is determined by using your property value assessment multiplied by the residential tax rate. The final bill is reduced by the amount billed on the interim tax billing. It is important to note that the amount deducted is not the amount paid, only the amount that was billed.

The rates for the education portion of residents' property tax bills are determined by the Provincial government and legislated under the Education Act. The portion of your bill relating to education is collected by the municipality on behalf of the Province but is remitted to public and separate school boards for the Barrie area. No portion of revenue collected for this purpose is retained by the municipality. The Tax Ratio By-law establishes the tax ratios used to determine the relative amount of taxation to be borne by each property class.
