A tax sale occurs when the Township of Tiny sells a property due to unpaid property taxes, in accordance with the Ontario Municipal Act. We advertise tax sales on our website, in the Ontario Gazette, and in the local newspaper. The purpose of the tax sale process is to assure the collection of taxes by municipalities is equitably shared by all taxpayers, and also to bring some finality to the process of tax collection.
Please note that there are no tax sales at this time.
A tax certificate is a legal document that shows the annual property taxes and any current or prior arrears for a property. Tax certificates are typically requested by a lawyer during a property transfer or purchase. The Township will not provide any verbal information regarding the status of property taxes.
