Dear Local Roads Board member,

The Ministry of Finance is writing to provide you with additional updates on the Provincial Land Tax (PLT) review.

The 2016 Ontario Budget committed to continue consultations with northerners on ways to further address property tax inequities in the North before determining PLT rate adjustments for 2017.

In addition to the open houses held across northern Ontario in 2015, the second stage of the PLT review includes further consultations with unincorporated area property owners. The Ministry of Finance is seeking written input from property owners through a PLT consultation questionnaire.

We encourage you to inform property owners in your local board area about the PLT consultation questionnaire and the opportunity to provide further input on the PLT review.

A PLT update, with information on the review and consultation is being mailed to all unincorporated area property owners with the interim 2016 PLT bill.

The PLT consultation questionnaire is available on the Ministry of Finance PLT website: http://www.fin.gov.on.ca/en/consultations/landtaxreform/. The input received will help guide the PLT review as it moves forward.

Please submit your responses to the PLT consultation questionnaire by June 1, 2016.

Those who do not have Internet access may request a hard copy of the PLT consultation questionnaire by contacting the Ministry of Finance.

As part of the second stage of the PLT review, the Ministry of Finance will also be seeking additional input from local roads and services board representatives.

We continue to welcome your input as the PLT review moves forward.

Sincerely,
The Provincial Land Tax Team
Ontario Ministry of Finance
