The Farm Property Class Taxation Program is implemented by the Ministry of Agriculture Food & Rural Affairs.

Under this taxation policy, farm properties meeting the eligibility requirements will be identified for the Farm Property Class and will be taxed at 25% of the municipal residential tax rate. The farm residence and one acre of land surrounding it will continue to be taxed as part of the Residential class.

Eligibility requirements for the Farm Property Class tax rate are consistent with those previously applied under the Farm Tax Rebate Program.

  • Eligibility Requirements for the Farm Property Class
  • How to Apply for a Gross Farm Income Exemption
