Your Property Taxes & Budget

On your Town property tax bill, you see a blended tax rate. This means that while Lincoln sets a certain tax rate increase, it is only on the Town’s portion of your tax bill. The diagram below shows the breakdown or blend of taxes.
 

Breakdown of taxes:

  • Lincoln’s portion 35.4%
  • Niagara Region’s portion 50.4% (Region & Region waste)
  • Education 14.2%
