Tax Arrears Procedures

The Township of Nipissing passed a Collections Policy on September 5, 2017, to reflect recent changes to Tax Registrations and Tax Sales under Bill 68, Modernizing Ontario’s Municipal Legislation Act, 2017.

Previously, a tax arrears certificate could be registered if there were arrears owing on January 1 of the third year following that in which the taxes became owing (per Municipal Act, 2001, s. 373(1)).

Example: If there were arrears owing from 2014 or earlier, a tax arrears certificate could be registered after January 1, 2017.

With the changes under Bill 68, a tax arrears certificate can be registered if there are tax arrears owing on January 1 of the second year following that in which the taxes become owing. The Collections Policy for the Township of Nipissing will make this transition effective January 1, 2018.

Example: If there are arrears owing from 2016 or earlier, a tax arrears certificate may be registered after January 1, 2018.

Property owners facing this process shall be notified early in October of each year.

Registration of a Tax Arrears Certificate

If registration of a Tax Arrears Certificate proceeds, the cancellation price would then include all outstanding taxes, all interest and penalty owing, current taxes owing, legal fees and administration fees. This entire amount must be paid in full by electronic transfer, certified cheque, cash or money order before the Tax Arrears Certificate is cancelled.

Property owners currently in arrears and facing this process are encouraged to arrange for payment of the outstanding taxes prior to January 1st. Should this not be possible, please contact the Township Office to further discuss their situation.
