NB Municipal Elections 2012

Understanding your property tax bill

Every spring New Brunswick homeowners open up their mailbox to find their property tax bill. But how do municipal politicians spend their money? This interactive chart helps illustrate how a homeowner’s tax bill is spent each year on different public services.

Enter in your property tax assessment into the field and select your community. You will see a pie chart that illustrates how much money you pay for a list of local services. This tool is designed to give an illustration of how your tax dollars are spent. The data comes from the 2011 Municipal Statistics guide produced by the Department of Environment and Local Government. The tax rates used are the average tax rate by each municipality. And the expenditure figures are based on figures collected by the provincial government.
