A permissive tax exemption is a means for Council to support organizations within the community which further Council’s objectives of enhancing quality of life (economic, social, cultural) and delivering services economically.
Division 7 of Part 7 of the Community Charter provides for permissive tax exemptions for Land and Improvements owned or held by a variety of not-for-profit organizations providing services which Council considers directly related to the purposes of the organization. It also provides for permissive exemptions for some properties which are additional to statutory exemptions under Section 220, such as church halls or land surrounding places for public worship.
Organizations looking to request a permissive tax exemption are asked to complete the attached application forms and submit to the Village of Sayward office no later than August 1st.
For additional information, please contact the Village Office at 250-282-5512.
