Permissive tax exemptions

Section 224 of the Community Charter, gives Council the authority to exempt certain land and/or improvements from municipal property taxes. Council considers Permissive Tax Exemptions for non-profit organizations that contribute to the well being of District residents and makes improvements to their quality of life.

Organizations thinking of applying for a Permissive Tax Exemption must successfully meet the general criteria as outlined in the District’s “Taxation Exemptions by Council Guidelines” Policy.
