  • The applicant and their spouse (if applicable) must solely own and occupy the property for which they are seeking tax relief
  • The tax relief applies only to increases in tax on assessment and does not apply to any additional charges that may be levied, including but not restricted to:  local improvement charges or any other miscellaneous types of charges added to the Tax Roll for collection purposes.
  • Tax relief shall be granted to only one eligible owner per eligible property per year.
  • The tax relief amount will be applied against the Final Tax bill thereby reducing the final tax installment payable. For those taxpayers on the monthly pre-authorized payment plan, their monthly amount will be adjusted to include the tax relief.
  • No tax relief pursuant to this program shall be allowed in respect of more than one single family dwelling unit in any year.  This property must be solely classified in the Residential tax classification.
  • Applications must include supporting documentation establishing that the applicant is receiving funds under one of the prescribed programs or in the case of an applicant who is 55 – 64 years of age as of December 31, 2018 and that their combined taxable income is less than $28,636 annually as required.
  • Applications returned for further documentation must be returned within 90 days of mailing from the Revenue and Taxation Division.  Failure to return the supporting documentation within that timeframe will result in the application being declined for that taxation year.
  • If taxes are paid in full for the entire year the rebate amount will be applied to the property tax account towards future years.  If taxes and penalty are not paid up-to-date the tax relief amount will be deducted from the outstanding tax account.  Refunds will not be issued in any circumstances.
  • In the event that the current value assessment of an eligible property is reduced subsequent to the granting of tax relief in a particular year, and the reduction is a result of the residential unit being removed from the property, or the unit being able to be occupied, the resulting overpayment will be added back to the tax account and subsequently invoiced to the taxpayer
