ON: Cap Property Taxes and Limit Municipal Taxation

Ontario

To the Premier of Ontario:

The current property tax rate system is unpredictable, unfair, and punitive to property owners. Year after year, homeowners are left guessing how much their property tax bill will be. Municipal spending has spiraled out of control because municipal councils first decide how much to spend, then decide how much to raise taxes to finance their spendthrift binges.

Taxpayers deserve certainty!

We, the undersigned demand that the province:

  • Cap property taxes at current rates
  • Limit increases to inflation according to the consumer price index (CPI)
  • Introduce a statute mandating that rate increases in property taxes may only be implement if passed by citizens through municipal referenda
  • Encourage municipal governments to reduce their reliance on the property tax base and move towards revenue-neutral user fees
You have the power to change who influences politics in our country: big unions, big corporations and government-funded special interest groups can be challenged by the contributions of thousands of individual taxpayers who care to make a difference.
