The Farm Property Class Tax Rate Program (Farm Tax Program) is one of the ways the province of Ontario supports agriculture. Through the program, eligible farmland owners receive a reduced property tax rate. Beginning on February 25, 2019, program inquiries can be directed to Agricorp at: 1-888-247-4999 or by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Any Farm Tax inquiries to OMAFRA’s Agricultural Information Contact Centre will be routed appropriately.
OMAFRA and Agricorp are committed to ensuring a seamless transition of the Farm Tax Program.
