In 2015, the Québec Government decided to offer seniors a grant to help offset significant municipal tax increases. The aim of the grant is to help financially taxpayers who are affected by a significant increase in the value of their residence. As of January 1, 2016, municipalities must inform owners of a residential assessment unit consisting of only one dwelling, that they may be eligible for a potential grant. This grant is given if there is a large increase in the value of a residence.
For the City of Dollard-des-Ormeaux, the significant increase is set at 25.02%, for the 2020-2022 Property Assessment Roll.
You may be entitled to apply for the grant if you meet all of the following conditions:
We will apply the general tax rate on the value of the dwelling that exceeds the average increase of one unit dwellings in the municipality (maximum grant: $500).
Subject to exceptions, the amount of the grant will stay the same for all the subsequent years of the 2020-2022 Property Assessment Roll. Exceptions may be due to the variation of the value of the property during the Roll.
