For example, using 2007 numbers, under "tax reform" homeowners in Halifax's south end will see an average reduction of $2,065, a 61 percent decrease, in their property tax bills, with a resulting average bill of $1,317. Homeowners in Eastern Passage, however, will see an average *increase* in their property tax bills of $347, a 35 percent increase, resulting in an average tax bill of $1,334.
The average tax bill in Eastern Passage will be $17 more than the average tax bill in the south end, even though the average tax assessment in the south end, $432,700, is more than three times higher than the average tax assessment of $129,326 in Eastern Passage.
