Pursuant to section 2 of the Estate Administration Tax Act, 1998, SO 1998, c 34, Sch, the amount of tax payable upon the issuance of an estate certificate for which application is made after June 7, 1992 is:
- $5 for each $1,000 of the first $50,000 of the value of the estate; and,
- $15 for each $1,000 by which the value of the estate exceeds $50,000.
