Mississauga's property taxes compare favourably with other Ontario municipalities according to a staff presentation to Council today based on BMA's Municipal Study 2004. The Municipal Study was prepared by BMA Management Consulting Inc. with information from 66 Ontario municipalities.
"Mississauga is a leader in its fiscal management. We have remained fiscally sound by ensuring that growth pays for itself, controlling our cost base and applying appropriate user fees," said City Manager Janice Baker.
The study found that Mississauga's tax levy per capita is low compared to most other municipalities. The net levy per capita in 2004 was $827 compared to the average of $955 and a high of $1,398 amongst the 66 municipalities surveyed. Mississauga is in the bottom 20 per cent of this category.
According to the staff presentation:
"These results confirm what our residents and business owners tell us: Mississauga offers a high quality of life by providing great services and competitive taxes," added Baker.
