Permissive Tax Exemptions

Section 224 of the Community Charter gives Council the authority to choose to grant property tax exemptions to non-profit organizations. If an exemption is granted under section 224, the organization will be exempt from municipal property taxes. Similar provisions in other taxing authority legislation extend the exemption to those levies as well.
To receive consideration for a permissive tax exemption in the next taxation year, applications must be submitted by May 31st. Organizations seeking an exemption must reapply each year.
There is no obligation to give the exemption and exemptions cannot be granted if the organization does not qualify under the Community Chart
