The City of Corner Brook Act defines Poll Tax as being an annual tax of $200.00 which is set by Council on all persons 18 years of age or older who ordinarily live in the City and do not own residential property or are employed in the City for a period of not less than 3 months of that billing year. A person who becomes a non-resident or employee in the City for the billing year is entitled to a rebate or exemption of the poll tax that the person has paid for the full year. The rebate will be in proportion to the duration of time that person is not a resident or employee.
Please note that all exemptions will be based on the date that the Poll Tax bill was originally sent.
If you are a student, and you earn more than basic personal amount from previous tax year, you are able to deduct the cost of your tuition (form T-2202A) and the education amount that you claimed on your income tax return from your total income. If the result is less than basic personal amount, you are exempt from paying poll tax for that billing date. (Do not include income from an RESP, Canada Pension (Orphan’s Benefits) or HRDC Education allowance when calculating your income).
Please complete the Poll Tax Exemption Application Form and bring your poll tax bill and any of the documents (listed below) that support your claim for the exemption, to City Hall, 5 Park Street, Corner Brook, and a Customer Service Representative will assist you in applying for an exemption. You can also fax documents to (709) 637-1625 or email: email@example.com
If you do not apply for and receive an exemption, the City will take measures to collect your poll tax payment and this could affect your credit rating.
