PIRF Fees & Explanation

The Municipal Act, 2001, Sec. 352, authorizes the Treasurer to issue Tax Certificates. Generally, these legal documents are meant to be supplied to law firms, banks, and mortgage companies acting for the owner on the purchase or sale of a property, and for refinancing purposes. 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 $80. If a copy of the cheque paying for the certificate is emailed to our office at, the requestor can call in thereafter to receive a verbal statement. A verbal is not provided without the ordering of a certificate.
