Property taxes are based on a formula that uses the assessed value provided by the Government of Yukon and mill rates established by the City of Whitehorse: Assessment x Mill Rate = Tax Levy
Mill rates are the property tax rates determined by City Council in each year’s Operating Budget. Mill rates are applied to the assessed value of a property to find the property tax levy amount. Assessment values are provided to the City of Whitehorse by the Government of Yukon’s Property Assessment and Taxation department.
2023 Mill Rate(s): Residential: 1.076 | Non-Residential: 1.628 | Agricultural: 1.146
For example, a residential property assessed at $200,000 in 2023 will have a tax levy of: 1.076% x $200,000 = $2,152.00.
Assessment values can be found on Virtual City Hall under the “Property Search” lookup.
