The Municipality is responsible for tax billing. Taxes provide the main source of revenue to deliver services supplied by the Municipality of French River.
Properties are assigned a tax class depending on the use or purpose of each property. Annual tax rates are set and applied to each tax class. The annual budget process determines the taxation rates. The Province of Ontario sets the school board tax rates annually. All tax rates determine the Municipality's property taxes. Your property tax rate equals the current tax rate (municipal and the school boards rates combined), multiplied by the current value assessment of your property determined by the Municipal Property Assessment Corporation (MPAC).
