City of Toronto Act Appeals

The forms on this page are for filing City of Toronto Act appeals only. For property assessment appeals see Filing an Appeal.

Note: Documents you submit to the Board are available to the public on request subject to limited exceptions.

Steps for filing a City of Toronto Act appeal:

  1. Contact the City of Toronto. Generally, tax applications are made to the City first.
  2. Wait for a decision from the City 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.)
  3. 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 the City will pass a bylaw directing applications to be filed directly with the ARB. Please check with the City before filing with the ARB.
  4. Use the forms below to file your appeal or application. Choose the correct form as it provides specific information about filing fees and deadlines.
  5. For the legislation regulating these appeals, refer to the City of Toronto Act, 2006.
  6. For information on how to file an application to cancel or reduce your taxes because of extreme poverty or illness contact the City of Toronto.
