Provincial Senior Tax Rebate Program

The Property Tax Rebate for Seniors helps low-income seniors with the cost of municipal residential property taxes.

The rebate amount is based on your municipal residential property taxes. The program provides eligible homeowners with a rebate of 50% of the municipal residential property taxes they paid for the previous tax year, up to a maximum of $800.

All of the amounts listed on your tax bill are eligible to be included in the rebate calculation, except amounts for:

  • commercial property
  • resource property (non-residential land or forest)
  • municipal exemption or rebate
