Tax Rates

These tax rate tables are for information purposes only and do not replace official documents. For the official documents, please contact the Finance Department.

The tax rate is calculated using the total amount of funds required for the Township of Champlain to provide goods and services, and the total assessed value of all properties within the Township.

A separate tax rate is set for each property class by each of the three government agencies (Municipal, Regional and Provincial).

The tax rate is set after Township Council and the United Counties of Prescott and Russell approve their budgets and the Province of Ontario sets the education rate. The tax rate is applied to the property's current year assessment value to determine the amount of property taxes to be billed for the year.

The Township of Champlain collects property taxes for two levels of government and the province’s education levy:

  • The Township’s needs and service levels–Lower Tier.
  • The United Counties of Prescott Russell–Upper Tier.
  • The province’s education levy

Garbage Rates

The garbage levies are based on the total cost of the landfill site, recycling collection and waste collection, therefore all taxpayers are levied a garbage rate on their property to incorporate the total costs. Garbage levies are included in the tax bill.

Tax Certificates

Tax Certificates show yearly and Installment tax amounts levied, payment information and outstanding account balance. The tax certificates are requested for a sale, a purchase or the refinancing of a property.  A tax certificate provides the name of the owner(s), the legal description, property address if available, local improvements and current tax balance.

At times, a letter requesting work orders against the property will also be needed to confirm that everything with the property is in order with the Building and Public Works Departments.

If the property has water and sewer, a formal request must be obtained for the meter reading to officially close the seller's account and open the new owner's account. This will also provide the date of reading to issue the final billing to the seller and start the new account for the buyer.

If a fire compliance letter is required, it should be addressed to the Fire Chief in a formal request.

To request a tax certificate or a water and sewer reading, a formal request must be send  by email to finance@champlain.ca or by fax at 613-678-3363. We usually process certificates within 2 weeks of receiving your request with payment. A paper and electronic copy will be provided.
