Minimum Municipal Tax
This year, Council adopted a minimum tax levy as approved in the 2018 Tax Rate Bylaw and in accordance with section 357(1) of the Municipal Government Act.  The Minimum Municipal Tax levy on all improved and vacant residential properties for 2018 is $1,000.00 which has been budgeted to collect $30,304.  All properties with an assessed value less than $131,367 are subject to the minimum municipal tax upcharge.

Example:
Property with Assessed Value of $200,000 
2018 Municipal Mill Rate   7.612243
Municipal Levy Calculation   200,000 x 7.612243/1000 = $1,522.45
No Minimum Tax Upcharge (municipal levy > $1,000.00)
Total Municipal Taxes Payable    $1,522.46


Property with Assessed Value of $125,000
2018 Municipal Mill Rate  7.612243
Municipal Levy Calculation   125,000 x 7.612243/1000 = $951.53
Add Minimum Tax Upcharge    $48.47
Total Municipal Taxes Payable    $1,000.00

Minimum tax levies were approved this year in order to assist in a more cost-effective and efficient distribution of municipal expenses to each property owner.  The same municipal services are provided to each property within the Summer Village regardless of the assessed value of the property, therefore, implementing a minimum tax helps to equitably allocate the cost of all services required to maintain and sustain the municipality.  While the vacant properties will see the largest tax increases this year due to the minimum tax payable, the intention of this is to encourage the development of these properties throughout the municipality.
