Tax assistance for residents

Low income seniors (65+ years) or low income persons with disabilities who own and live in their own home for at least one year and meet the following criteria can apply for a tax rebate on their annual property tax.

Every owner of the property must be receiving benefits under the Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS) Program, or the Ontario Disability Support Program (ODSP) or must be the spouse of an owner receiving the GIS or ODSP benefit.

For example:

  • If a husband and wife own the property, either one must be receiving GIS or ODSP
  • If a husband and wife own the property with a sibling, the sibling and either the husband or wife must be receiving GIS or ODSP
  • If two siblings own the property, both siblings must be receiving the GIS or ODSP

If you qualify for the tax rebate, you’ll automatically qualify for a Stormwater Charge Subsidy. Single family homes will receive the subsidy on their Region of Peel water bill. Condominiums will receive a cheque mailed to them from the City of Mississauga.

Complete the tax rebate application form and submit it with applicable supporting documentation in any of the following ways:

Applications must be submitted on or before December 31 of the current tax year. You can submit your application at any point in the current year if all required documentation is available.
