If you pay the household energy bills, you may qualify for Your Energy Rebate.
If your current property assessment indicates 100% "residential taxable", or a combination of "residential taxable" with "resource taxable", "resource forest", or "resource exempt", your bulk vendor of home heating oil, propane, natural gas or firewood will deduct your rebate from your bill. For electricity, if your rate code is a residential code, your power provider will deduct your rebate from your bill.
If your property is assessed as partly residential taxable you may still qualify for a rebate. You will have to apply as a mixed used property. See Application Form Landlord and/or Mixed Residential/Commercial/Resource Farm Application for Your Energy Rebate.
If you are being billed at the domestic service rate, the rebate is automatically deducted from your bill. The base charge is also eligible for the rebate.
Effective January 1, 2010, energy efficiency program charges are eligible for the rebate.
For all other home energy products (e.g., wood pellets, kerosene, cylinder propane) you must complete an application form to receive Your Energy Rebate. If you purchase firewood from a vendor other than a registered Bulk Vendor, you must complete an application form to receive Your Energy Rebate. See Application Form Consumer Application for Your Energy Rebate.
Complete the application form in full.
Include all receipts for the home energy purchases.
Please ensure that your receipts indicate the following:
If you have any questions about your rebate, please call 1-800-670-4357, or in HRM call 424-5200. You will have to apply for your rebate.
You can apply once you have spent $300, before taxes, on purchases of energy products (equal to a $30 rebate). Otherwise, a rebate claim may be made for any amount if the claim period covers at least 12 months. You have up to 24 months to apply from the date of purchase of the home energy.
