Applications for tax rebates and credits must be received by the City of Greater Sudbury's tax department no later than Feb. 28, 2013, said the city.
Residents who have been assessed for properties that should be exempt, residents who believe they have been assessed at an incorrect tax rate and residents who believe a significant clerical error has occurred on their property assessment are also eligible to apply for a rebate or refund by the Feb. 28 deadline.
