Loyalist Budget


Property owners in Loyalist Township are getting a break from the municipality on their tax bill.

Loyalist Township Council has approved a budget that contains no increase in taxes.

However, property taxes are determined by the township budget and the provincial assessment of the value of your home.

The average residential assessment has gone up $4,750 dollars in Loyalist and that translates into a tax increase of about $34 on an average property tax bill.
