This program, administered by Access Nova Scotia on behalf of the Department of Community Services, is designed to help eligible seniors remain in their homes by providing an annual rebate on their municipal property taxes.   The program provides eligible homeowners with a rebate (determined by the Provincial Government) on property taxes paid the previous year.

This program applies to seniors receiving either the Guaranteed Income Supplement or The Allowance.  To find out if you qualify for the GIS or The Allowance, call Service Canada at 1-800-277-9914.  

Applicants must also own and live in their home at the time they apply for the rebate and continue to reside in their home.  The previous year's property taxes must also be paid in full.

For more information on the Property Tax Rebate for Seniors Program contact Access Nova Scotia at 1-800-670-4357 or the Municipal Office in Hebron at 902-742-7159. Application forms are available in July of each year at Access Nova Scotia in the Provincial Building on Starrs Road as well as the Municipal Office in Hebron.  The program ends on December 31st of each year.
