As Canadians, Nova Scotians, and Yarmouth residents, we enjoy a wonderful lifestyle which is possible through paying taxes and accessing essential utilities. Here's what you need to know about paying taxes and accessing utilities in Yarmouth.
Your municipal property taxes go towards many of our essential services, such as garbage pickup, sewers, roads, fire services, and more. These are based on property assessments, which have been handled by the Property Valuation Services Corporation (PVSC) since 2008. You can learn more about property assessments from their website.
