Ownership Changes

If you are moving away from the Township of East Zorra-Tavistock and you have a Pre-Authorized Payment plan, YOU MUST notify the tax office IN WRITING at least THIRTY (30) DAYS BEFORE the next pre-authorized payment is due to cancel payments.

If you receive a tax bill for a property you no longer own, please

  • Send the tax bill to the new owner of the property; or
  • Return the tax bill to us, indicating to whom the transfer of title has been made.

Our office is not always made aware of ownership changes. To prevent misdirected tax bills, please advise us in writing or by fax of the mailing address change, quoting the property address and roll number on all correspondence.View our page regarding moving for additional resources.

Failure to receive a tax bill does not waive any liability for payment of taxes or interest charges.

Tax Certificates

A tax certificate is a statement of outstanding property taxes, which is usually requested by lawyers at the closing of a real estate transaction. The vendors' or purchasers' lawyer can apply for a Tax Certificate from the Township Office with a fee, listed in the User Fee schedule. Once we have received the funds required for a Tax Certificate, we will process it and fax or mail the certificate to you.
