Obtaining a tax certificate
A tax certificate is a legal document that shows the annual property taxes and any current or prior arrears for a property.
Tax certificates are typically requested by a lawyer during a property transfer or purchase. They provide information regarding yearly tax amounts levied, tax payment information and penalties accrued (if applicable). They also confirm any outstanding balances.
