Tax Appeal Application 

The Municipality of Leamington accepts applications to reduce property taxes in the following situations:
  • If a property could not be used for its normal use because of repairs or renovations for at least three months during the year,
  • If the use of a non-residential property has changed since the return of the last revised assessment roll,
  • If a property has "exempt status" after the return of the last revised assessment roll,
  • If there has been a fire or demolition in a building,
  • If there is a "gross and manifest error" in the assessment.

If you believe you qualify for a reduction of your taxes the municipality must receive your Tax Appeal Application form by the last day of February in the tax year after these circumstances occurred. You may also appeal your taxes for the two years preceding the current year if there was a "gross and manifest error" in the assessment. The municipality must receive these applications by December 31 of the current year.  You can submit your application by email to taxes@leamington.ca or at the municipal office.
