In January 1998, the Farm Tax Rebate Program was replaced by the Farm Property Class Tax Rate Program. Farm properties satisfying the eligibility requirements are identified for the Farm Property Class and are 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.
