Taxes report card
Have you ever wondered what Burlington does with your property taxes you pay them?
According to the 2014 Community Report Card just released by the City, every $1 you pay in property taxes, the City keeps 42 cents. The remaining 22 cents goes to the Halton School Boards and 36 cents goes to Halton Region.
The report also lets you know where that money is being spent such as on the upkeep of 804 km of sidewalks and on the 122 city-owned parks. To download your copy click www.burlington.ca/communityreport/
