You may qualify for the provincial tax credit if you:

  • co-own a property and 50 per cent or more of the owners reside in PEI for 183 consecutive days or more each taxation year defined as January 1 to December 31.

Detailed information on provincial tax credit eligibility can be found in Section 4 and 5 of the Real Property Tax Act and Section 24 of the Real Property Tax Act Regulations.
