ARB Fees Increased, Effective January 1, 2017January 1, 2017 | News
Please be advised that the Assessment Review Board (ARB), a constituent tribunal of the Environment and Land Tribunal Ontario (ELTO) is changing its appeal fees.
Effective January 1, 2017, ARB appeal fees are as follows:
- The residential assessment appeal fee is changing from $75 to $125 per roll number. A $10 discount still applies if E filed.
- The non-residential assessment appeals fee is changing from $150 to $300 per roll number. A $10 discount still applies if E filed.
The ARB fee increase is a necessary requirement to fulfill ELTO’s commitment to maintaining a fair, modern and adjudicative tribunal system through improved technology and alternative service delivery methods. For more information on the fee increase, please visit our FAQs.
ARB filing fees have not changed for 10 years, while operating and administrative costs have increased significantly. The tribunal will continue to carry out their functions of processing appeals, scheduling hearings and issuing decisions in the most efficient way possible.
These fee changes are in line with the Ministry’s revenue and reinvestment strategy, which supports the province’s plan to move towards recovering operating costs through user fees. The fees are still structured so that ELTO’s adjudication services are reasonable and accessible.
Please make sure to review and update any of your own publications or documents that may reference ARB appeal fees.
