Your Vacant Home Tax Declaration is due February 29th!

Need help filling it out? We are here to help!


The Vacant Home Tax Declaration is due next Thursday, February 29th! The goal of the Vacant Home Tax is to discourage owners from leaving their residential properties unoccupied. Homeowners who choose to keep their properties vacant will be subject to this tax. 

 So, if your property is currently occupied by you and/or tenants, it is important to submit your declaration as soon as possible. Read for more info below.

Vacant Home Tax Declaration 

The easiest way to submit your vacant home tax declaration is through the City’s online portal. 

The City’s secure online portal is the best way to submit a declaration. It’s quick and easy to declare online – and helps prevent potential errors and readability issues that sometimes occur with declarations completed by hand.

 If required, homeowners can download a PDF  of the form to complete and submit by mail.

To make your annual declaration, you will need the 21-digit assessment roll number and the customer number from your property tax bill or property tax account statement.

Please do not submit any personal information by email as it is not a secure form of file transfer.

If there is an error in the declaration you submitted and it is not past the declaration deadline, you can re-file a new declaration.

Owners of properties that are classified within the residential property tax class must declare their property’s 2023 occupancy status by February 29, 2024.

Our office located at 2350 Finch Ave W - Unit C (Finch & Weston) is also open and any of our team members will be happy to assist. Call our office at 416 338 5335 to book your appointment.
