Minimize Your Property Taxes

As a farmland owner in Ontario, you may be eligible to apply for a property tax reduction through the Farm Property Class Tax Rate Program.

As an eligible applicant under the program:

  • Land and buildings used for residential purposes will be taxed at your municipality's residential tax rate
  • The remainder of the farmland on the property will be taxed at no more than 25% of the residential tax rate

Farm properties that do not qualify under the program will be taxed at the residential rate.
