The Property Tax Rebate for Seniors 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 them with an annual rebate on their municipal property taxes. The program provides eligible homeowners with a rebate (determined by the Provincial Government) on their municipal property taxes paid the previous year.
This program applies to seniors receiving either the Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS) 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.
Seniors applying for the rebate will no longer be required to submit a receipt showing their last year’s property tax bill is paid in full. This may eliminate the need for seniors to make a trip to the Municipal office in Hebron to gather tax documentation.
If you applied for the Property Tax Rebate for Seniors in 2020, you should receive an application form by mail. If you do not receive one, you can pick one up at the municipal building in Hebron or go the following link and print a copy.
