Request a tax certificate

A tax certificate is a legal document that shows annual tax payments, any current or prior year arrears and any local improvements billed to the property. Tax certificates are typically requested by lawyers during a property transfer or purchase.

Rush requests

Property tax certificates are now available online by using the Tax Certificate Online Tool (TCOL) made available in collaboration with Teranet and Access Point Information Canada. TCOL is a fast, convenient way to obtain tax certificates electronically.

To order a tax certificate online you will need to set up a TCOL user account, provide the roll number or municipal address for the property you wish to order the tax certificate for. Once payment is confirmed, you will receive the electronic certificate in less than a minute.

The fee for ordering a tax certificate through TCOL is $76.87
