2021-22 Residential Property Tax Assistance Program
Struggling to pay your property taxes? Applications are now available for the 2021-22 Residential Property Tax Assistance Program. Qualified applicants receive a rebate in the form of a credit applied to their tax account.
Each year, Council sets the exemption rate per Section 69 of the Municipal Government Act, and as outlined in our Residential Property Tax Assistance Policy.
If household taxable income does not exceed $25,300 for 2020, taxpayers may be eligible for a credit. This credit can be up to 50% of the current year's property taxes but there is a maximum amount based on community, as follows:
• West Hants $113.34
• Community of Hantsport $157.87
• Community of Windsor $ $202.40
Submit CRA Notices of Assessment as proof of income for all residing in your household. Remember that taxable income is less than total income. Factor in deductions such as childcare, RRSP contributions, and union dues. You may qualify and not know it!
The deadline to apply for this rebate is July 30, 2021. Click pdf here (446 KB) to download the application or call us at 902-798-8391 to request a form.
