2014 Regional Budget – Keeping Your Taxes Low

Did you know that municipalities only receive 11 per cent of taxes collected? Your property taxes are distributed three ways – to your Local Municipality, the Provincial Government (for education) and Halton Region.

For eight years in a row, Halton Region has frozen or reduced taxes collected for Regional programs and services.  We are committed to being an effective, fiscally responsible and transparent government that delivers high quality programs and services.  View my latest video blog to learn more about Halton Region’s 2014 Budget.  Our website also includes detailed information about how your tax dollars are being spent.
