What Is Estate Administration Tax?

In Ontario, when someone dies, their estate is taxable.  This tax is referred to as the Estate Administration Tax and it is due upon applying for a Certificate of Appointment of Estate Trustee from the Superior Court of Justice.

When Do I Have To Pay This Tax?

If you are unable to pay the Estate Administration Tax at the time of filing the application for a Certificate of Appointment as Estate Trustee, you may bring a motion, asking the judge to allow you to defer payment until the estate funds become available to you as Estate Trustee.  Hummingbird Lawyers LLP has experience and success with filing these types of applications and motions.  Please contact us if you have any questions or require our assistance.

How Is the Estate Administration Tax Calculated?
