GROWING STRONGER TOGETHER

Your 2018 County Tax Dollars Explained

  (For every $250,000 of assessed property value from MPAC†)

Your annual tax bill issued by your local municipality (city, town or township) includes costs for services provided by the County of Oxford, your local municipality, and your local school board.

No matter where you live in Oxford County, the tax rate you pay for county services is the same. In 2018, a residential home valued at $250,000 by MPAC will pay about $84 a month – or $1,007 for the year – to maintain Oxford’s roads, waste facilities, emergency ambulance, public health services, social services, provincial court, municipal planning, long-term care at Woodingford Lodge, the County library system† and more.

In Oxford County, many of our residents have water and/or wastewater services. Unlike other county services, these services do not receive revenues from property taxation and are fully funded by area specific user rates.
