The Provincial Education Requisition Credit (PERC) program provides eligible municipalities with an education property tax credit equal to the uncollectable education property taxes on oil and gas properties.
Last year, the Government of Alberta announced the PERC program
to help off-set uncollected taxes from defunct oil and gas properties. PERC reimburses the education property tax portion of the unpaid property tax bill that is requisitioned by the Government of Alberta despite the municipality not being able to collect the property taxes from the property.
The application deadline for the PERC program is January 15, 2019. The 2019 PERC application submission may include uncollectable education property taxes retroactive to the 2015 tax year. For PERC program guidelines, click here
