The Tax Breakdown is an educational tool that provides a better understanding of how your 2018 tax dollars are used. Enter your property tax assessment value in the box below to identify your 2018 tax levy. If you don’t know or don’t have a property tax assessment value, please use the average value provided.
You’ll be able to see the breakdown of where your property taxes went, specifically how much goes to the City compared to the Region of Durham and the Province of Ontario for local school boards, as well as how the City of Oshawa portion of your taxes is used.
Please Note: Figures are rounded to 2 decimal places; as a result, rows may not add due to rounding.
We’d love for you to share your priorities on 10 key programs and service areas (based on the 2018 City budget) for a chance to win an iPad!
Let us know how you would allocate your tax dollars to key programs and service areas for the City’s 2019 budget?
As a thank you, we’re giving away one (1) iPad. See our Budget webpage for Rules and Conditions.
Your submission will help inform City staff and Council of the community’s priorities during the 2019 City Budget process.
Are you ready?
