[00:25] BELL CHIME

[00:26] Followed by last week’s introduction to NRST, a 15-25% tax imposed on the purchase of residential property in Ontario by individuals who are not citizens or permanent residents of Canada, or by foreign corporations. We also covered the steps on how to file a Notice of objection, but what happens if that is also denied?

[00:50] Well, if your Notice of Objection gets denied, the next option is to go to court and file a Notice of Appeal. It is a notice to the Ministry of Finance to appeal their decision in court.

[01:01] You must file this within 90 days of receiving the Ministry of Finance’s decision on the Notice of Objection, with both the Superior Court of Justice and the Objections and Appeals Branch at the Ministry of Finance.

[01:14] If you would like help with applying for your NRST rebate or objecting to or appealing a decision made by the Ministry of Finance, please book a free consultation with us today at www.landmarklaw.ca/book.
