Township of Essa > Rebates for Vacant Units

Rebates for Vacant Commercial and Industrial Units (Ended December 31, 2017)

This program has been eliminated across all local municipalities within the County of Simcoe effective January 1, 2018 in accordance with Ontario Regulation 325/01 as amended.

The vacant unit rebate program for commercial and industrial properties provided partial property tax rebates for qualifying units and buildings that were unoccupied and unused for a period of at least 90 days within a taxation year. This was an application based program and applied to vacancy periods that ended on or before December 31, 2017.​

The last day for which eligibility could be claimed was December 31, 2017 and the last day on which a valid application could be made was February 28, 2018.
