Quebec to standardize school taxes

Chris Lowrey
QUEBEC Nov. 22, 2017
Across the province, school tax rates are set to undergo a major change.
Although details still need to be announced, the province will change the current taxation system so that both English and French school boards will get the same amount from ratepayers.
There are 18 administrative regions across the province. Each region can currently charge differing rates depending on enrollment in the English and French boards.
The school tax rate is capped at $0.35 per $100 valuation of a property. The current mill rate in the Pontiac is around $0.13 per $100 valuation for the Western Quebec School Board (WQSB).
Currently, those who don’t have children enrolled in the Quebec school system can choose which school board to pay their taxes to.
