Complaining about $89? My property tax in Milton is going up by $300 over the next 5 years as they say my house is "worth" $450K - BULLSHIT! Couldn't sell is for $420K even before the downturn!!

Property tax isn't overly high in Toronto. About average. Values are what are killing everyone. Your CVA is higher than other areas, such as barrie hence higher taxes.

Toronto government is pure NDP and has vested so much into social services in Toronto that their infrastructure has suffered huge. Hence when the citizens cry over social service cuts and infrastructure crumbles, taxes must come up.

I dont think the hike is that bad.. BUT coupled in with all the other BS we need to pay- new garbage bins, new plate fees, etc- it adds up.

least we can charge people to rent up the ass.

Lets take the population of Canada vs China. There are many poor here as well. They just hide it with credit cards and loans. You just have to come down on the ground and dig deeper by not looking from the air at CN tower and skyline. If I am not mistaken, they sold more new cars in China than Us not long ago. I am sure that some cars in china are not the best , but Americans are not much better as well.

The poor here dont live the same as the poor in china.

The poor in china work as slaves for 1 dollar a day. And barely survive.
The poor in canada work make at least minimum, get benefits from the government, and can raise a family and not starve to death.

The rise in resisdential property tax is nothing when you consider that Toronto has enjoyed one of the lowest residential property tax rates in GTA for years. (you can thank Lastman for that)

http://www.propertytoronto.com/2008taxrates.pdf
http://www.milton.ca/ecodev/TAX_COMPARISON.pdf
http://www.sellhomestoronto.com/updatenews4.htm

I don't know why there is all this complaining. The folks that should be complaining are the ones out in Oshawa/Whitby who have been paying highest rates in GTA for years now and their infrastructure is much newer than Toronto.
