Discontinuation of Vacant Unit Tax Rebate Program
In 2017, the Province announced that municipal rebates for vacant commercial and industrial properties and excess commercial and industrial land are no longer mandatory. In 2019, Lanark County Treasurers asked Lanark County to begin the process to apply to the Province to eliminate these rebates throughout Lanark County. County Council supported this action on September 4, 2019.
On November 10, 2020, Lanark County received notification from the Ministry of Finance that instead of preparing the regulations to implement the County’s requested changes to eliminate the exemptions, the Provincial Government would be enacting changes to the Municipal Act that would enable municipalities to modify the vacancy rebate and reduction programs at the local level through municipal by-law. These changes to The Act received Royal Assent on December 8, 2020.
Property owners submitting applications in 2020 (for rebates of 2019 taxes) we informed verbally that the program would be unavailable in 2021 (for rebates of 2020 taxes).
On Tuesday, March 23rd, 2021 By-law No. 43-2021 to discontinue the Vacant Unit Tax Rebate Program for owners of vacant commercial / industrial property or portions thereof was passed.
