Newsletter re: Residential Property Assessment

 

 By now you have received your new Property Assessment for 2016 and for most people the Residential Property Assessment has increased significantly. In fact, significant assessment increases have been reported all throughout Newfoundland and Labrador this year. This does not mean that your 2016 taxes will increase significantly. Council has some control and will certainly take into consideration the significant increases in this year’s assessments. Council can adjust the mil rate and minimum Property Tax which will help ease the financial burden for most taxpayers. There will probably be some increase in 2016 taxes but certainly not to the extent they would be at the current mil rate.

 

Council does not request this assessment to be done and they do not have a choice in who performs the assessment. The Municipal Assessment Agency performs the assessments for all of Newfoundland and Labrador with the exception of St. John’s which has a different Municipalities Act.

 

Property Tax Assessment is mandated by the Municipalities Act and that value determines the amount of Property Tax you are charged. These assessments are done every 3 years by the Municipal Assessment Agency and are based on the value of your property as of two years prior. In this case your 2016 assessments are based on the value of your property as of 2014.

 

Council cannot answer how the Municipal Assessment Agency determines each individual assessment. You would have to contact them to find these answers. The Municipal Assessment Agency contact information can be found on their website. There is a link to it on the town website @ www.townofcarmanville.ca.

 

Council does determine the mil rate and the minimum Property Tax Rate. This is done during budget preparation annually and must be submitted to Municipal Affairs by December 31st of each year. The tax and fee schedule is posted in the newspaper annually.

 

To determine the mil rate for the coming year, Council must first determine their expenses for 2016. Then they adjust the taxes to meet this expenditure as they must submit a balanced budget. This is the time of year that Council works on its budget but this is a time consuming project and cannot be figured out in a couple of weeks –the budget process usually begins in October and is completed by the middle to the end of December.

 

As for where your tax money goes – the annual budget and the audited financial statements are public documents after they have been adopted by Council and you can certainly come into the office to view them.

 

Please keep in mind that your taxes have not increased in the past with the added cost of the new tipping fees for disposal of your garbage and the curbside collection that has come into effect in the past couple of years. The town has continued to do Spring and Fall Cleanup at no extra cost to you. You do not pay extra for Fire Protection or Street Lighting – both of which cost the town a substantial annual amount. You may not realize that the town is preparing to install town sewer and are replacing the old waterlines at the same time. We are now in the first phase of the project which is installing the sewer outfall. Your taxes have not increased with this extra expense.

 

The town will only budget for the amount of taxes we need to offset the expenditures for next year.

 

A Public Meeting has been requested and is scheduled for November 26th @ 7:00 p.m. at Phoenix Academy Mini Theatre. See you there.
