Claim Your Home Owner Grant

You can complete your Home Owner Grant online. You will need your tax notice to complete the online form.

Find your folio and access code and submit them into the form.  The picture to the right shows you where you can find these numbers on your tax notice.

Your Home Owner Grant ("HOG") is considered a form of payment and you may claim it online until December 31.

If you have not claimed your HOG by December 31st, interest will be charged on the unclaimed amount at the provincially legislated rate (currently 5.70%) beginning January 1st and you will be required to submit a Retroactive Home Owner Grant Application in order to claim the grant.

Remember, in order to avoid the first 5% late payment penalty on the HOG portion of your taxes, you MUST submit your completed Grant application by July 4, 2017, even if you are not making FULL payment at that time, or if your taxes are paid by instalment or by your mortgage company.

To avoid the second 5% late payment penalty on the HOG portion of your taxes, you MUST submit your completed Grant application by August 3, 2017.

If you turn 65 at any time during 2017, you are eligible for the Additional Grant. Be sure to mark the appropriate box and include your Date of Birth on the application form.

Please call the Tax Department at 604.792.9498 or send an email to taxes@chilliwack.com if you have any questions regarding the form itself, or eligibility for the Grant.
