Please be advised that the Province of Ontario has approved the following amendments to Norfolk County’s Vacant Unit Rebate Program effective January 1, 2018:

  • For applications based on the 2017 taxation year the rebate remains status quo at 33%.
  • For applications based on the 2018 taxation year the rebate will be reduced to 16.5%.
  • The rebate program will be eliminated for taxation years 2019 and beyond.

Norfolk County is working on revising the Vacant Unit Rebate application forms to include these changes and will make them available on the website soon.  The current application document is practical for submission of a 2018 Rebate admission.
