At the May 22 Annual Budget meeting, Council for the Municipality of the District of Yarmouth increased the total income amount for the Low Income Exemption for 2019/2020 fiscal year.

The exemption may be granted to property owners whose household income from all sources in 2018 does not exceed $25,000 (including income of all individuals residing in the home).

This may provide for an exemption of 50% of the current year’s taxes up to a maximum of $200.00, on the primary residence, after any Federal or Provincial property tax rebates are taken into consideration.

A copy of your 2018 Notice of Assessment from Revenue Canada to verify your income is required. An application can be obtained from the Municipal office, 932 Hwy 1, Hebron or online at www.district.yarmouth.ns.ca and must be returned on or before July 31, 2019.  If you require further information please contact the office at 902-742-7159 or email: This email address is being protected from spambots.
