Service Fee/PILOT Housing

Why am I not allowed to use the 20% (standard amount) of my annual rent to calculate my homestead property tax credit if I live in Service Fee/PILOT (payment in lieu of taxes) housing?

Regardless of the amount of rent paid, the Income Tax Act provides that a renter living in Service Fee/PILOT housing must calculate the property tax credit using only 10% of rent paid.

Service Fee/PILOT Housing is a program with an agreement between a municipality and a rental property owner (private or public) to pay a service fee instead of property taxes.
