The District of Guysborough has the lowest residential property taxes in the province.  There is land and housing available, at prices that are competitive with or better than most other parts of the province.


The business, or commercial tax rate in the District is competitive with other rural areas in the province, and generally much lower than in urban municipalities.

Municipal taxation is more complex because it is a shared responsibility of the municipality and the Province.  We strive to offer information to make municipal taxation understandable.
