The Home Owner Grant (HOG) due date is the same as the property tax due date. Before claiming the Home Owner Grant ($570 or $845), the amount is considered outstanding taxes, therefore subject to all penalties.
The eHOG is only available through this portal until midnight December 31 of the current year. To claim LAST YEAR's Home Owner Grant (Retro HOG Application) or for other options if you do not want to claim electronically, please go to the our website at www.highlands.ca then choose the PROPERTY TAX tab on the left, then HOME OWNER GRANTS section.
Remember the HOG must be claimed every year!
IMPORTANT to avoid late penalties: After submitting the HOG application you should receive a confirmation of submission via email which you will provide when claiming your HOG below. Please print this confirmation for your records; this is your ONLY proof that you claimed the HOG before the due date. Note that all grants are subject to review before a claim is approved or denied, according to regulations of the Home Owner Grant Act. A penalty WILL NOT BE ADJUSTED without this confirmation.
