The Provincial Education Requisition Credit (PERC) provides municipalities with an education property tax credit equal to the uncollectable education property taxes on delinquent oil and gas properties.
Initially introduced to provide relief to municipalities for the 2015 through 2019 tax years, the program has been extended for two more years as the tax recovery challenges continue.
Municipalities may apply for PERC retroactively to the 2015 tax year through to the 2021 tax year.
To reduce red tape, municipalities can now apply for both the PERC and the Designated Industrial Requisition Credit (DIRC) programs under a single application.
