Tax rates

The tax rate in Lanark County consists of 3 components:

  • Local municipal
  • Lanark County
  • Education

Each of these components is related to the budgetary needs of the three entities. The tax rate is expressed as a percentage of a property's assessed value. Each property class has its own tax rate. The tax rate multiplied by the assessed value, results in the amount of property taxes payable for the year.
