The City of Mississauga offers a tax rebate on annual property taxes for low income seniors and low income persons with disabilities who own and occupy their own home. The rebate is applied to your account to offset property taxes. This program replaces the previous loan programs offered by the City and the Region of Peel.
The 2017 tax rebate was $400, beginning in 2018 this rebate will be indexed annually. The actual rebate amount will be approved by Council each spring when the tax rates are set.
To be eligible, you or your spouse must be receiving benefits under the Guaranteed Income Supplement Program, or the Ontario Disability Support Program.
The application form is currently not available as it is being modified to reflect the changes in the program. We anticipate the revised application to be available by May 2018.
Applicants in receipt of the Tax Rebate will automatically qualify for a Stormwater Charge Subsidy. Single family homes will receive the Subsidy on their Region of Peel water/wastewater/stormwater bill. Condominiums will have a separate cheque mailed to them from Environmental Services at the City of Mississauga.

Ontario Senior Homeowners’ Property Tax Grant
The Province of Ontario implemented the Ontario Senior Homeowners’ Property Tax Grant program in 2008. In addition to the tax rebate offered by the City, the Province provides a grant to help low income seniors with the cost of their property taxes.
