Request of Tax Certificate
The Municipal Act, 2001, Sec. 352, authorizes the Treasurer to issue Tax Certificates. Generally, these are legal documents meant to be supplied to lawyers, acting for the owner on the purchase or sale of a property. Certificates give the annual taxes, any current or prior year arrears, and any local improvements billed to the property. There is a fee charged for this certificate. The information is valid only at the moment of production of the certificate, and does not anticipate future changes of the amount owing.
Certificates are only generated and printed upon receipt of the fee for same. The current fee is $50.00. If a copy of the cheque paying for the certificate is faxed to this office (519-770-1259), the requestor can call in thereafter to receive a verbal statement. Verbals are not given without the ordering of a certificate.
At some future date, we anticipate that payment for the certificate can be made on this request process, and will enable the Tax Office to produce certificates immediately.
