PROPERTY TAX AND TAX RATES
Property taxes are collected based on a percentage of the property’s current market value assessment (CVA). Each municipality is required to collect property taxes, and set the tax rate for the various property types. Municipal tax rates vary depending on the property type.
The annual tax bill is calculated by applying the tax rate against the current market value assessment of the property. For properties in Middlesex County and it's lower-tier municipalities, property taxes are calculated by performing the following 4 calculations:
- Current Market Value Assessment x County of Middlesex Tax Rate = County of Middlesex Property Taxes
- Current Market Value Assessment x Lower Tier Tax Rate = Lower Tier Property Taxes
- Current Market Value Assessment x Education Tax Rate = Education Property Taxes
- County of Middlesex Property Taxes + Lower Tier Property Taxes + Education Property Taxes = Your Property Tax.
property assessment is the responsibility of the municipal property assessment corporation. for more information, visit their website at www.mpac.ca

PROVINCIAL HARMONIZED SALES TAX
As of July 1, 2010, Ontario harmonized its retail sales tax with the federal goods and service tax (GST) to implement the HST at the rate of 13%.
HST is charged on purchases of taxable supplies of property and services. A limited number of sales or supplies are exempt from HST.
Although the consumer pays the tax, businesses are generally responsible for collecting and remitting it to the government. Businesses are required to file returns on a regular basis, collect the tax on taxable supplies they make in Canada, and remit any resulting net tax owing.
The Canada Revenue Agency administers the HST. For more information visit their website.
