A tax certificate is a legal document which provides a guarantee of the tax balance on an account at a specific date, subject to qualifications. Tax certificates also provide more detailed information on monthly payment information (PAD plans), penalties, previous year tax levy, and water/sewer balances.
Tax searches contain only the basic information required to be displayed on the Assessment Roll:
- Roll Number
- Municipal Address/Legal Description
- Amount Outstanding
- Assessed Values
- Tax Levies
Tax Certificate - $25.00 per property tax account
Tax Searches - $10.00 per property tax account
Tax certificates and tax searches can be requested by email, fax, or mail, identifying the specific property and providing instructions as to how you wish to have the tax certificate returned to you. These can be paid by credit card over the phone, in person at Town Office, or by cheque. The tax certificates and searches will be issued within 2 business days of payment being received.
