Tax Certificates

Tax certificates provide information regarding yearly tax amounts levied, tax payment information and penalties accrued (if applicable).  They also confirm any outstanding balances.

Important information

  • Tax Certificates are used primarily during the sale/purchase of a property or refinancing.

  • Tax Certificates are issued upon requests for tax information made by solicitors, owners, financial institutions or mortgage holders.

  • A Tax Certificate request letter is required together with the applicable fee.  A cheque for the applied fee must be made payable to the "Township of The Archipelago".

  • The tax certificate request letter must include the name of the current property owner(s); name, address, telephone and fax number of the law firm or financial institution; property address, legal description, lot size and roll number; closing date.
