The Township of Scugog provides programs and services to the community based on an annual Operating and Capital budget. Input from the community is a vital part of the budget planning process. Council reviews the budget to ensure the goals and priorities they have set are reflected in the budget. Once Council is satisfied with the budget, it is approved.

The budget is then used to calculate the Township's portion of the tax rate by property class. The Township's tax rates are then combined with the Region of Durham tax rates and the Education tax rates from the Ontario Government, to calculate the annual tax rates for the properties in the Township.
