Implementation Costs

Implementation costs are provided for information purposes only since many different factors can influence tax rates.

Property Tax

Since 2007, property taxes are issued solely to the owners of the building. Property tax is determined based on the municipal assessment of the building and the tax rate of each district or borough. For 2011, tax rates for non-residential buildings are as follows:

  • Ascot: $2.09/$100 evaluation
  • Brompton: $2.09/$100 evaluation
  • Canton de Brompton: $1.724/$100 evaluation
  • Deauville: $2.09/$100 evaluation
  • Fleurimont: $2.09/$100 evaluation
  • Lennoxville: $2.09/$100 evaluation
  • Rock Forest: $2.09/$100 evaluation
  • Saint-Élie: $2.09/$100 evaluation
  • Sherbrooke: $2.09/$100 evaluation
  • Stoke: $2.09/$100 evaluation

Tax rates for a retailer, tenant of commercial space, are determined according to the terms specified upon signing the lease.

Water Tax

The water tax for commercial retail space located in a predominantly non-residential building, without water meter reader, is set at $124.85.

Buildings with a predominantly commercial vocation are fitted with water meters. The subscription fee is $37.35 per commercial premises whereas the consumption rate is calculated at $0.3686 per cubic metre of water consumed.

Sanitation/Solid Waste Tax

The sanitation/solid waste tax for commercial business premises located in a predominantly non-residential building, without water counter, is set at $228.05.

If there is a water meter reader, the rate is established at $0.5071 per cubic metre of water consumed.

Since the calculation of water and sanitation taxes is complex and is dependent on a number of specific factors, please refer to the city of Sherbrooke’s Tax Department to obtain additional information: www.ville.sherbrooke.qc.ca/taxation or 819-821-1993.
