How are your 2013 taxes calculated?

The amount of your property taxes is calculated using two variables:

  1. The assessed value of your property, as calculated by the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation external link, ,
  2. The tax rate, as determined by the revenue requirements of the City of Oshawa, the Region of Durham, and the Province of Ontario who sets the rates for the education levy.

The formula used to calculate your taxes is as follows:

Assessment x Tax Rate  = Taxes

For example, a residential property (rtc/rtq RT) located within the City of Oshawa, owned by a public school supporter, assessed at $225,000 would pay the following 2013 property taxes:

City: $225,000 x 0.690297%  = $ 1,553.16
Region: $225,000 x 0.716050%  = $ 1,611.11
Education: $225,000 x 0.212000%  = $   477.00
Total $225,000 x 1.618347%  = $ 3,641.28
