How will this affect your monthly and annual tax payments?
If you received a Tax Credit Advance of $437.50 in 2022 on your tax bill, you would now see a credit of up to $350.00. The province will mail a rebate cheque directly to you in the month taxes are due of 50% of your gross Education Property Tax.
