Municipal Non-Residential Phased Tax Program (PTP)

The Municipal Non-Residential Phased Tax Program (PTP) was developed to assist non-residential properties impacted by large shifts in market value. The PTPs are Council approved programs and each PTP program is one time, separate from each other and is not an extension of prior PTPs. 
 
Two Municipal Non-Residential Phased Tax Programs have been approved by City Council for Tax Year 2017 and Tax Year 2018. 

For Tax Year 2019, no decision has been made by Council.

2017 Tax Year
The 2017 PTP is a separate, one-time program.  No application was required, and the tax effect of the phase-in was applied through the 2017-non-residential property tax billing process.

For 2017, the Municipal Phased Tax Program was approved by Council to limit the increase in municipal non-residential property taxes to 5% in 2017 for eligible non-residential properties (not including the effect of Business Tax Consolidation or the provincial tax requisition).  Residential properties and businesses were not eligible for the program and exclusions applied.

2018 Tax Year
The 2018 PTP is a separate, one-time program and not an extension of the 2017 Municipal Non-Residential Phased Tax Program (PTP).  No application was required, and the tax effect of the phase-in was applied through the 2018 non-residential property tax billing process.

For 2018, the Municipal Phased Tax Program was approved by Council to limit the increase in municipal non-residential property taxes to 5% in 2018 for eligible non-residential properties (not including the effect of Business Tax Consolidation, the 2017 Council Approved Rebates, 2017 PTP credits, or the provincial tax requisition). This program used the same eligibility parameters as the 2017 PTP.

2019 Tax Year
Administration will report back to council in May 2019 with options to address the Non-residential tax shifts, which may include a 2019 PTP option for council’s consideration.
