Municipal property tax has increased about 3% in each of the past few years. If you wish to help set a rate for 2019, please adjust the slider below to indicate how much is acceptable to you. In 2018 the average Kitimat house was assessed at $222,000. A 1% tax increase would see the average homeowner paying $12 more, or roughly $300,000 in revenue to the District of Kitimat. This tool will let you input your priorities while balancing revenue to expenses in the budget.
You may increase or decrease spending in each area presented, as well as increase or decrease municipal taxes, however, decreasing an area budget may result in reduced service levels. You must balance the overall budget, as Council is required by law, in order to submit your choices. Are you up to the challenge?
Thank you for your participation. The results will be reviewed by Council as part of the 2019 budget process. The 2018 budget may be found here.
Please take a few minutes to use this budget tool to show us how you would like to see your tax dollars invested. We value your input and look forward to hearing from you regarding what you would like to see maintained, enhanced or reduced. We welcome your comments in each section of the survey to explain your choices or give us general feedback.
