Eligible Residents Reminded to Apply For 2014 Tax Rebates

The City of Greater Sudbury reminds registered charities, legions, licensed day care nurseries, owners of vacant commercial or industrial property, and other eligible residents that the deadline is approaching to apply for rebates and credits on final 2014 property taxes.

Applications for tax rebates and credits must be received by the City of Greater Sudbury's Tax Department no later than Monday, March 2, 2015.

Residents who have been assessed for properties that should be exempt, residents who believe they have been assessed at an incorrect tax rate and residents who believe a significant clerical error has occurred on their property assessment are also eligible to apply for a rebate or refund by the March 2 deadline.

Residents who are age 65 and over may be eligible for an elderly tax assistance credit in the 2015 tax year. To qualify, residents must be age 65 as of December 31, 2015, be the recipient of the Government of Canada's Guaranteed Income Supplement and meet other criteria under the municipal by-law.

Full details to determine eligibility for tax rebates and credits are available by dialing 3-1-1 or by visiting the city's website at www.greatersudbury.ca
