Registered Charity Tax Rebate

Richmond Hill has a Charity Rebate Program for registered charities occupying commercial or industrial space in the community. Your charity must have a registration number from the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA).

Charity Rebate Programs are required by Section 361 of the Municipal Act, 2001

The rebate can only be made for eligible charities that pay taxes on properties they occupy in the commercial or industrial classes of property within the City of Richmond Hill. The rate of rebate is currently 40%. Taxes on property assessed as residential are not applicable.
