Where do my tax dollars go?

For every dollar that you pay in property taxes, less than 50 cents goes to the Township of Severn. The rest of the money goes to the County of Simcoe, local school boards (Simcoe Muskoka Catholic District School Board and the Simcoe County District School Board) and policing. We work to ensure that the portion of your taxes that goes to the Township is put toward important services and infrastructure that help keep our residents safe. Here are some examples:

  • parks and recreation
  • planning and development
  • roads and bridge maintenance
  • public library
  • protection to persons and property
  • general government operations
