Property Tax Information
The Township of Clearview Finance department is responsible for the billing and collecting of property taxes for the Municipality and on behalf of the County of Simcoe and the School Boards. Property taxes are levied twice a year by an Interim and Final Notice. The interim billing reflects taxes due for the first part of the year with two installment due dates (For 2023 these due dates are March 30th & May 25th, 2023). The Final billing reflects taxes due for the last part of the year with two installment due dates (For 2023 these due dates are July 27th & September 28th, 2023).
These taxes are used to provide Clearview Township residents with a variety of services including road maintenance, snow removal, emergency services, parks, arenas, community centres, public transit, planning & development, and more.
Property tax is calculated and billed using the property’s assessed value, as found on your property assessment notice issued by MPAC and the Council-approved property tax rate.
Property Taxes are made up of three main components: Education Taxes, County of Simcoe Taxes and Municipal Township Taxes:
- Municipal Taxes: The tax rate to cover the costs of supplying municipal services is based on Council’s adoption of our annual budget. Revenues from provincial grants, user fees and other sources are deducted from the total expenditures, resulting in a final amount that needs to be raised through taxation.
- County Taxes: These taxes are based on the tax rate adopted by the County of Simcoe. This portion is remitted to the County to support their role in supplying various services including waste management, housing and shelter and public health and emergency services.
- Education Taxes: This tax rate is set by the Province of Ontario and remitted to the local school board you support.
