New tax is coming to Mississauga
City of Mississauga will soon charge homeowners and businesses for stormwater costs based on how much of their property is covered. If you have a very small house that causes little run-off water, you will pay nothing. But if your home is in the highest of five size categories, it will cost $170 in 2016 for your share of the city’s stormwater management costs.
No fee – below 287 sq. ft.
$50 – 287 to 1,066 sq. ft. (row houses and freehold townhomes)
$70 – 1,067 to 1,625 sq. ft. (semis, linked homes and small single detached houses)
$100 – 1,626 to 2,088 (medium single detached homes)
$100 – 2,089 to 2,605 sq. ft. (large single detached homes)
$120 – 2,606 and up (very large single detached homes)
