The Municipal Property Tax rate in the Town of Stratford for non-commercial property is $0.44 per $100 of assessed value. The Provincial Property Tax rate for non-commercial property in the Town of Stratford is $1.00 per $100 of assessed value. The total municipal and provincial Property Tax rate for a residence in Stratford is therefore $1.44 per $100 of assessed value. In other words, a $100,000 home is assessed a tax rate of $1,440 per year of which $440 goes to the Town of Stratford and $1000 goes to the Province of P.E.I.

The Municipal Commercial Property Tax rate is $0.99 per $100.00 assessed value. When this is combined with the Provincial Real Property Tax Rate of $1.50, the combined rate is then $2.49 per $100.00.
