2020 Property Tax Rates and Related Matters
Origin
(January 6, 2020) Report from the Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer
Recommendations

The Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer recommends that:

 

1.  In respect of calculations to establish 2020 tax rates and tax ratios, City Council elect the following in order to determine the notional tax rates to raise the previous year's levies:

 

a.  subject to receiving the necessary amendment to Ontario Regulation 121/07 for the 2020 taxation year, to exclude the assessment of a property in a property class from the calculation of the total assessment of the properties in that property class if the current value of the property has increased by 100 percent or more or decreased by 25 percent or more, in accordance with subsection 2.2(4), paragraph 2 of Ontario Regulation 121/07 ("Ontario Regulation 121/07"); and

 

b.  to adjust the total assessment for property in a property class so that the assessment excludes changes to the tax roll for the previous year resulting from eligible assessment-related losses from prior years, in accordance with an election under subsection 19 (4) of Ontario Regulation 121/07 to make subsections 19 (4.2), (4.3) and (4.4) apply.

 

2.  City Council adopt the 2020 tax ratios shown in Column II for each of the property classes set out below in Column I:

Summary

This report recommends the 2020 municipal tax ratios and tax rates arising from the concurrent adoption of the City of Toronto's 2020 tax supported Operating and Capital Budgets.

 

The 2020 tax rate increases arising from the 2020 tax supported Operating and Capital Budgets and the tax policy decisions recommended by the Budget Committee are as follows:

The report from the Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer on 2020 Property Tax Rates and Related Matters was distributed to all Members of Council on January 10, 2020 as part of the agenda for the Budget Committee meeting of January 15, 16 and 17, 2020. 

Financial Impact

The tax ratios and rates recommended in this report reflect the policy decisions recommended to Budget Committee and permitted and/or mandated by recent or pending Provincial regulatory changes, including:

 

- allowing one-half of the tax rate increase on the Residential property class to be applied to the Commercial property class


- continuing the City's tax ratio reduction policy to achieve a business tax ratio target of 2.5-times the residential rate, with a revised target date of 2023 (i.e. policy impact)   


- freezing of the tax burden on the Multi-Residential property class for 2020, as mandated by the Province


- making a property tax rate calculation adjustment to reflect the year-end assessment used in the notional property tax rate calculation to offset changes resulting from certain in-year assessment-related changes (i.e. adjustment for appeals)


- making an adjustment to the notional property tax rate calculation to exclude assessment of a property in the calculation if the current value assessment of the property has increased by 100 percent or more or decreased by 25 percent or more (i.e. adjustment for outliers) 

 

The recommended local municipal general tax levy for 2020 is summarized as follows:

In addition, the grant aims to design an evaluation of the health effect of these interventions.

 

Toronto Public Health with Transportation Services is seeking to apply for $0.065 million of this funding in 2020. Toronto Public Health will apply as the lead applicant and will coordinate the funding to be assigned to the activities within the grant proposal.

 

The grant opportunity is composed of two parts: a five-day workshop in a leading healthy city and a post-workshop planning and knowledge translation event. The post-workshop event in Toronto will be an invitational event to apply the findings from the first workshop and develop a set of specific intervention and evaluation of activities.

 

This work will advance the mandates of both Toronto Public Health and Transportation Services as well as key initiatives such as the Vision Zero 2.0 Plan and the Complete Streets Guidelines.

 

This report provides a summary of the Planning Grant and seeks City Council approval for the Medical Officer of Health to increase the 2020 Operating Budget of Toronto Public Health by $0.065 million to receive the Canadian Institutes of Health Research Planning Grant, subject to approval of the application.

- Toronto Police Service 2020 Parking Enforcement Unit operating budget; and,
- Toronto Police Services Board 2020 operating budget.

Financial Impact

Toronto Police Service – 2020 Operating Budget

 

The Toronto Police Service (Service) 2020 operating budget request is $1,076.2 Million ($1,221.2 Million gross), which is $40.8 Million or 3.9 percent above the 2019 approved budget.  A full 2.8 percent ($28.9 Million) of the 3.9 percent is related entirely to the impact of applying the collective agreements with the Toronto Police Association and Senior Officers’ Organization.  An additional 0.1 percent ($0.8 Million) is for other base budget pressures. The remaining 1 percent ($11.1 Million) will fund new and enhanced initiatives that align with the need to respond to critical community safety priorities, modernize the Service to deliver policing services in the most efficient and effective manner, and invest in initiatives that will improve public trust and accountability.

 

This request includes funds for new and enhanced initiatives, including:

 

- The hiring of 341 uniform officers to enable the addition of 140 net new uniform officers to be deployed to Priority Response Units across the city, eight net new traffic officers to focus on Vision Zero enforcement priorities, 40 net new Neighbourhood Community Officers to be deployed to up to 10 additional city neighbourhoods, and officers to backfill those that retire or separate from the Service,

 

- Five net new positions in the Service’s Equity, Inclusion and Human Rights Unit, and


- Implementation of a Body Worn Camera Program.
 

Table 1 and Table 2 below provides a breakdown of the request between the base budget and new and enhanced.

(See Table 2 titled "- Summary of 2020 New and Enhanced Budget Request by Category",

in the Financial Impact section of the letter dated

December 18, 2019 from the Toronto Police Services Board)

 

Note: As a part of the City’s plan to modernize the budget process, a policy change has been made that requires the removal of interdepartmental charges and recoveries from the 2020 operating budget request and the restatement of the 2019 approved budget.  An interdepartmental charge or recovery is a payment made from one Agency or Department in the City to another for the delivery of goods or services. This change is intended to simplify the process by removing the payments from one City area to another, which ultimately is paid for by the same taxpayer.  As a result of this policy change, the Service’s 2019 approved budget is restated from $1,051.5 Million to $1,035.4 Million.   Hereafter, any reference to the 2019 operating budget will be made using the 2019 restated figure.

 

Toronto Police Service 2020 to 2029 Capital Program

 

Capital Program requirements are funded from various sources, specifically:

 

- debt issued by the City of Toronto (City);


- the Vehicle and  Equipment Reserve, which is funded from the Service’s operating budget;


- Development Charges which are fees charged to developers to help pay for the cost of infrastructure required to provide municipal services in growing areas to qualifying Service projects – using Development Charges reduces the Service’s reliance on debt funding; and,

 

- other source of funding such as Provincial grants.

 

Unlike previous years, the City did not issue a debt targets for the 2020 – 2029 Capital Program. Instead, consideration and approval of projects in the Capital Program will be based on need and value provided, project readiness and previous year’s spending rate.

 

Table 1 below provides a summary of the Service’s 2020-2029 Capital Program request.  Additional details can be found in Attachment A, contained within Appendix A.

(See Table 1 titled "- Summary of the 2020-2029 Capital Program Request (000’s)",

in the Financial Impact section of the letter dated

December 18, 2019 from the Toronto Police Services Board)

 

*Development charges applied to Vehicle and Equipment Reserve reduced the required funding in that category

 

Toronto Police Service 2020 Parking Enforcement Unit Operating Budget

 

The Parking Enforcement Unit’s 2020 net operating budget request is $49.2 Million net ($50.8 Million gross) which is a $1.9 Million or 4.1 percent increase over 2019 net operating budget.

 

As a part of the City of Toronto’s (City) plan to modernize the budget process, a policy change has been made that requires the removal of interdepartmental charges and recoveries from the 2020 operating budget request and the restatement of the 2019 approved budget.  An interdepartmental charge or recovery is a payment made from one Agency or Department in the City to another for the delivery of goods or services. This change is intended to simplify the process by removing the payments from one City area to another, which ultimately is paid for by the same taxpayer.  As a result of this policy change, the Toronto Police Service - Parking Enforcement Unit 2019 approved budget is restated from $47.6 Million to $47.3 Million.  Hereafter, any reference to the 2019-operating budget will be made using the 2019 restated figure.

 

Toronto Police Services Board 2020 Operating Budget

 

The proposed 2020 net operating budget of $1,930,400, recommended in this report, represents an increase of 1.4 percent over a 2019 adjusted budget of $1,903,700.

 

The proposed increase of 1.4 percent is related entirely to the application to Excluded Board Staff of the settlement reached between the Board and the Senior Officers’ Organization. 

 

In order to absorb the annualized costs of the two new positions approved by the Board in 2019, the 2020 proposed budget includes a decrease to the Legal Reserve contribution of $104,200.  Based on the pattern in spending for independent legal advice, this decrease is likely sustainable. 

 

As a part of the City’s plan to modernize the budget process, a policy change has been made that requires the removal of interdepartmental costs and revenues from the 2020 operating budget request and the restatement of the 2019 approved budget.    An interdepartmental cost or revenue is a payment made from one Agency or Department in the City to another for the delivery of goods or services. This change is intended to simplify the process by removing the payments from one City area to another, which ultimately is paid for by the same taxpayer.  As a result of this policy change, the Board’s 2019 approved budget is restated from $2,484,400 to $1,903,700.   Hereafter, any reference to the 2019 operating budget will be made using the 2019 restated figure.

ACTION 

 

 

Ward: All 

Additional City of Toronto Reporting Requirement as a Result of Ontario Regulation 286/09, Budget Matters - Expenses
Origin
(January 9, 2020) Report from the Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer
Recommendations

The Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer recommends that:

 

1.  City Council receive this report for information.

Summary

The Budget Committee at its meeting of January 15, 16 and 17, 2020 deferred consideration of Item 14.3 - Additional City of Toronto Reporting Requirement as a Result of Ontario Regulation 286/09, Budget Matters - Expenses to the January 28, 2020 meeting of the Budget Committee.

 

Ontario Regulation 286/09 "Budget Matters - Expenses" (Regulation) allows the City of Toronto (City) to exclude amortization expense, post-employment benefit expenses and solid waste landfill closure and post-closure expenses when preparing its annual budget.  However, the Regulation requires that the City prepare a report which includes at a minimum, an estimate of the change in accumulated surplus resulting from the exclusion of the noted expenses from the budget, and an analysis of the impact of the exclusion on future capital asset funding requirements.  The Regulation requires that this report be adopted by City Council (Council) prior to the adoption of its annual budget.

 

This report discusses the impact of excluding amortization expense, post-employment benefit expenses and solid waste landfill closure and post-closure expenses from the City's budget, along with the impact of the differences between how the City treats the purchase of tangible capital assets, debt principal repayments, Government Business Enterprise earnings, and expenses arising from contaminated site liabilities for budgeting and financial reporting purposes.  The items treated differently for accounting versus budget purposes, beyond those identified in the Regulation, are included to reflect the complete impact on estimated accumulated surplus for 2020.

 

The report from the Chief Financial Officer and Treasurer on Additional City of Toronto Reporting Requirement as a Result of Ontario Regulation 286/09, Budget Matters - Expenses was distributed to all Members of Council on January 10, 2020 as part of the agenda for the Budget Committee meeting of January 15, 16 and 17, 2020. 

Financial Impact

There are no financial implications as a result of this report. 

 

Section 228 of the City of Toronto Act requires that the City prepare an annual balanced budget, which does not create a budgeted surplus or deficit.  The City's 2020 operating and capital budgets include all entities funded through tax and rate based programs, including agencies and corporations. 

 

For financial reporting purposes, an annual surplus or deficit amount can be created when revenues and expenses are accounted for using Public Sector Accounting standards, followed by all levels of government in Canada.  The resulting surplus or deficit increases or decreases the City's accumulated surplus.  The estimated 2020 accumulated surplus reported in the City's financial statements, resulting from the consolidation of 122 entities and including the financial results of operating and capital activities, Water and Solid Waste and all agencies and corporations, is estimated to increase by $2.456 billion to a projected $29.790 billion and is comprised mostly of the City's investment in tangible capital assets required for service delivery.

 

It is important to note that the estimated surplus noted above of $2.456 billion is an accounting surplus.  It ultimately represents and is triggered by the City's requirement to capitalize capital assets on the balance sheet and amortize them to operations over the useful life of the City's assets.  This accounting surplus does not reflect cash available to support 2020 cash outlays within the 2020 Budget.
