Property Tax Policy

  • The Tax Policy Reference Manual has been created to assist elected municipal officials, municipal staff and property owners in understanding all aspects of tax policy and current value assessment in Wellington County. 
  • The manual covers a range of topics from the roles and responsibilities of different levels of Government, to providing definitions for property classes and current value assessment, as well as understanding supplementary and omitted assessment, and ways one can challenge their assessment if necessary. 
  • Finally, it provides an overview of the Provincial regulations surrounding tax policy including setting tax ratios, ranges of fairness, vacant unit rebate programmes, capping options, relief for low income seniors and disabled homeowners, as well as tax rebates for charities and legion properties.
