Registered charities which occupy property in the commercial or industrial class may be eligible for property tax rebates of 40 per cent. All those who wish to apply must have a valid registration number issued by The Canada Revenue Agency and submit an application by the last day of February following the tax year.
The application form can be downloaded as an online fillable PDF document. It is also available in the Tax Office, Room 407 at City Hall,300 Dufferin Avenue.
The tax rebate offered to charities is intended to offset property tax increases that resulted from the elimination of the Business Occupancy Tax. Qualifying charities must apply each year for the rebate.
