Filing and Fees


Filing

You can file your application in person, by mail, or by fax at any LTB office or drop it off at one of 60 ServiceOntario Centres. For a list of these locations, see: Contact the LTB.

In most cases, you must pay a fee to file an application. If you don’t include the fee, the application will be sent back to you.

When you submit your application, staff will check your application form and the supporting documents. They will also check to make sure the application has been filed on time. If staff find mistakes in your application, it may be refused or you may be contacted to fix the errors.

Exclamation mark Follow the instructions and fill out your form carefully and completely. Staff will check for mistakes but you are responsible for making sure your form is complete and correct. If your application or notice has mistakes or information is missing, the LTB member could dismiss your application.

Payments are accepted in cash or by debit card, certified cheque (payable to the Minister of Finance), money order, Visa or MasterCard.
