British Columbia Issues Reminder On Carbon Tax Relief

by Mike Godfrey, Tax-news.com, Washington

02 February 2017


The British Columbia Government has issued a reminder to commercial greenhouse operators that the deadline for applications for this year's greenhouse carbon tax relief grants is March 20, 2017.

The annual grant covers 80 percent of the carbon tax that commercial greenhouse growers paid on the natural gas and propane they used for greenhouse heating and CO2 production in the previous year. Commercial vegetable and floriculture producers, wholesale nurseries, and forest seedling nurseries are eligible to apply for the grant.

The Ministry of Agriculture expects the processing of applications to be completed by May 30.

The Government said that since the relief grant was made a permanent program in 2013, commercial greenhouse operators have received grants of around CAD7m (USD5.4m) a year.
