Time for a debate about city taxes
Why is the City of Burnaby’s tax higher than Vancouver’s?
Why is Burnaby’s tax rate 2.3443 compared to Vancouver’s 1.84728?
Why doesn’t Burnaby have assessment averaging like Vancouver?
For years Vancouver’s taxpayers have benefited from this system.
Vancouver city taxes on a $900,000 house are $492 less than Burnaby’s, even before the benefits of assessment averaging.
Because this is an election year, one would expect serious debate between the city parties on the high taxes, especially since there is no opposition on city council.
