35.4. The rent for land in the domain of the State leased for the implementation of telecommunication equipment is determined on the basis of the administrative region where the land is located, the proximity of the land to inhabited zones and its area.
The annual rent is calculated as follows:
(1) determine the reference rent of the zone according to the grid established in section 18 of Schedule I;
(2) multiply the reference rent of the zone by one of the following percentages:
(a) 100% if the area of the land is less than 5,000 m2;
(b) 120% if the area of the land is from 5,000 to 14,999 m2;
(c) 140% if the area of the land is from 15,000 to 24,999 m2;
(d) 160% if the area of the land is more than 24,999 m2;
(3) add, if applicable, an amount equal to 30% of the reference rent of the zone for each third person or for each corporation affiliated with the lessee that has installed additional telecommunication equipment on the land or on the lessee’s equipment. However, that amount is not added where a third person or a corporation affiliated with the lessee is a municipality or a non-profit organization or where the telecommunication equipment of a third person or corporation affiliated with the lessee is intended for purposes other than cellular telephones;
(4) round up the annual rent obtained to the nearest dollar if the fraction of a dollar is $0.50 or more, and round down to the nearest dollar if otherwise.
Where all the telecommunication equipment is exclusively intended to provide public security services, the annual rent corresponds to 1% of the market value of the leased land.
Where land is leased to a municipality, to a non-profit organization or where the telecommunication equipment is intended for purposes other than cellular telephones, the annual rent is that indicated in section 12.1 of Schedule I. The rent is adjusted in accordance with subparagraphs 3 and 4 of the second paragraph.
