Municipal Act Appeals
The forms on this page are for filing Municipal Act appeals only. For property assessment appeals see Filing an Appeal.
Steps for filing a Municipal Act appeal:
- Contact your municipality. Generally, tax applications are made to the municipality first.
- Wait for a decision from the municipality on your tax application (in certain sections of the legislation you can also appeal to the Board if the Municipal Council has not made a decision on your application within a specific amount of time.)
- If you disagree with the decision made by the Municipal Council about your application, you can appeal that decision to the Assessment Review Board (ARB). * Also note, in some cases a municipality will pass a bylaw directing applications to be filed directly with the ARB. Please check with your municipality before filing with the ARB.
- Use the forms below to file your appeal or application. Choose the correct form as it provides specific information about filing fees and deadlines.
- For the legislation regulating these appeals, refer to the Municipal Act, 2001.
You cannot use E File to file a Municipal Act appeal.
