To: “PLT Reform Office (MOF)” <>

As you are aware, the Ministry of Finance is reviewing the Provincial Land Tax (PLT). Based on the results of the review, the Province will bring forward proposals that could be implemented beginning in 2015. The goal of the proposals will be to increase fairness among northern property taxpayers.

Because of your role as a member of a local board, we would like to let you know that the Ministry of Finance will be mailing a Provincial Land Tax Update to all unincorporated area property owners at the end of March. The update will include information about the PLT review to date. For those property owners who receive interim PLT bills, the update will be included with their bills.

Decisions about PLT rates for 2015 have not yet been finalized. Any changes to PLT rates for 2015 would appear on the final PLT bill. No changes will appear on the interim PLT bill.

To view the PLT update in advance, please see the Ministry of Finance web site.

We encourage you to circulate this to property owners who are part of your board and to others who are interested in the PLT review. Consultations are ongoing, and we continue to welcome your feedback on the PLT review. If you have questions about the PLT review, please contact us.
