Amongst the lowest commercial / industrial property tax rates in the region

In 2012 the commercial property tax rate is 0.02048396%. 

Property tax is calculated based on MPAC assessed value where Assesment Value X 0.02048396 = Total Property Tax in 2012

Therefore affordable real estate not only saves investors money with the bank, but also in property taxes each year!
