New Brunswick Campgrounds Protest Tax Increases

Wed Mar 22, 2017

The popular Shediac campground Camping Beausejour got a rare 33 percent cut on its property tax rate this year but owner Marie-Paul Martin has not been celebrating.

That's because the province gave her business a 70 percent increase in its assessed value at the same time, pushing Martin's tax bill up, not down, according to a story by CBC News in New Brunswick.

Factoring in the assessment increase and rate decrease, Martin's property taxes are up more than $4,700 (15 percent) over last year. She has already filed an appeal and she has plenty of company.
