Tax Rates

The majority of operating finances collected by the Town of Marathon are dependent upon the annual taxes levied on its property owners.  These funds are applied towards the administration of all municipal departments for the provision of many essential services: police and fire protection, road maintenance, sewage and drainage, parks and recreation economic development and tourism.




Property owners may apply to the Treasurer for cancellation, reduction or refund on all or part of taxes levied. Requirements are governed by legislation as described under Sections 357 and 358 of the Municipal Act. Applications under Section 357 must be received by February 28th of the year following the year in respect of which the application is made. Applications under Section 358 must be received between March 1st and December 31st of a year and may apply to taxes levied in one or both of the two years preceding the year in which the application is made. Section 358 applies only to overcharges caused by gross or manifest error in the preparation of the assessment roll that is clerical or factual in nature. It does not apply to errors in judgment in assessing the property
