2017 Home Owner Grants
2017 Home Owner Grants can be claimed online starting May 23, 2017.
NEW – Changes in 2017
- Homeowners can now give permission to an “agent” to apply for their home owner grant on their behalf. The agent’s name and phone number are required.
- If in 2016 you provided the Collector with proof of receipt of provincial disability assistance, hardship assistance or a supplement under the Employment and Assistance for Persons with Disabilities Act, and you still qualify, you no longer need to provide proof to claim the additional grant.
The Home Owner Grant is a provincial government program designed to assist home owners by reducing their school taxes payable on their principle residence.
The Home Owner Grant Administration office publishes Explanatory Notes on the Home Owner Grant which details eligibility requirements for the basic and additional (senior or disability) grant. For additional information on the Home Owner Grant visit the Province’s website.
Information on disability grant qualifications and how to apply for a Home Owner Grant for People with Disabilities can be found here.
ATTENTION iPhone and Tablet Users! Please turn-off the auto correct feature when applying for your home owner grant online using your phones or tablets as invalid applications could be submitted.
