This program, administered by Service 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 50% rebate of the actual residential municipal property taxes paid the previous year, up to a maximum of $800.00 per year. The rebate is always based on the property taxes paid in the previous year. 

You are eligible to receive the rebate if you meet ALL of the following criteria:

  • You were receiving either the Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS) or The Allowance in January 2018. To find out if you qualify for the GIS or The Allowance, call Service Canada at 1-800-277-9914.
  • Your previous year's property taxes were paid in full

Applications will be available as of July 1, 2019.
