The graph and descriptions below illustrate how 2017 property tax dollars were distributed, based on an average change in assessed residential property value.
City services provided by Delta property taxes are the focus of this budget exercise. Utility services such as water, sewer, and solid waste are funded separately through utility fees, not through property taxes, so those services are not covered here. Delta also collects taxes on behalf of other agencies, as shown below, but their services are not included in this simulation.
How does it work?
To find out your personal breakdown of property taxes, enter your property assessment value as found on your 2017 property tax bill or BC Assessment notice, or use the average residential property value in Delta of $924,000.
Move the sliders to the left or right to simulate an increase or decrease for each service category. You will see the total property tax dollar impact of your changes.
