(General)

Note: Since the end of 2000, Ontario Regulation 282/98 has been amended by Ontario Regulation 54/01.  Previous amendments are listed in the Table of Regulations published in The Ontario Gazette dated January 20, 2001.

1. Ontario Regulation 282/98 is amended by adding the following section:

Designated Airport Authority

45.1 (1) Subject to subsection (2), for the purposes of this Regulation, the passenger total for a taxation year with respect to a designated airport authority is,

(a) for 2001, the total number of enplaned and deplaned passengers reported for 1998 for the designated airport authority in the Statistics Canada publication entitled “Air Carrier Traffic at Canadian Airports 1998”, Catalogue No. 51-203-XIB, published in July 2000, as set out in Table 1.1 entitled “Top 100 Airports Ranked by Enplaned and Deplaned Passengers, Selective Services”; and

(b) for a taxation year after 2001, the total number of enplaned and deplaned passengers reported for the designated airport authority in the Statistics Canada publication entitled “Air Carrier Traffic at Canadian Airports”, as set out in the table entitled “Top 100 Airports Ranked by Enplaned and Deplaned Passengers, Selective Services”, published during the immediately preceding taxation year.

(2) If a designated airport authority and the municipality in which it is located agree in writing by March 31 of a taxation year, the passenger total for that year shall be equal to the total number of enplaned and deplaned passengers for the designated airport authority for the immediately preceding year, as reported by the designated airport authority to the municipality.

(3) Subject to subsection (4), for each taxation year beginning with the 2001 taxation year, a designated airport authority shall make a payment in lieu of taxes to the municipality in which it is located in the amount determined by multiplying the passenger total for the year for the designated airport authority by the passenger rate set out in the following Table for that designated airport authority.

(4) If the amount determined for a designated airport authority under subsection (3) for a taxation year after 2001 exceeds 105 per cent of the amount paid for the immediately preceding taxation year, the payment in lieu of taxes for the taxation year shall be equal to 105 per cent of the amount paid for the immediately preceding taxation year.

(5) A designated airport authority shall pay to the municipality in which it is located the amount owing under this section for a taxation year,

(a) in equal quarterly instalments by March 31, June 30, September 30 and December 15 of the taxation year; or

(b) in the proportions and at the times agreed to in writing by the designated airport authority and the municipality.

(6) The first instalment for the 2001 taxation year under clause (5) (a) shall be paid on or before the later of March 31, 2001 and the day that is 30 days after the day this Regulation is filed.

(7) If a designated airport authority fails to make a payment at the time it is required to do so under subsection (5) or (6), the municipality may impose on the designated airport authority a penalty equal to the penalty that the municipality imposes on owners of property in the commercial property class for the non-payment of taxes under section 399 of the Municipal Act.

(8) If a designated airport authority fails to pay all of the amount required under this section for a taxation year on or before the last day of the taxation year, the designated airport authority shall pay forthwith an amount equal to the taxes for municipal and school taxes that would be payable for the taxation year if the property were taxable and the collector’s roll for the municipality shall be amended to show the designated airport authority’s liability to pay that amount.

(9) If Statistics Canada fails to publish the publication referred to in clause (1) (b) by December 31 of the immediately preceding taxation year, the payment under subsection (3) shall be calculated for the taxation year using the passenger total determined for the immediately preceding taxation year, and that amount shall be adjusted during the taxation year if the publication is subsequently published.

(10) By March 31 of each taxation year, or a later date agreed to by the designated airport authority and the municipality, the designated airport authority shall provide the following information to the municipality:

1. The number of enplaned and deplaned passengers reported for the designated airport authority in the Statistics Canada publication in clause (1) (a), as published for the immediately preceding taxation year, or, if subsection (2) applies, the total number of enplaned and deplaned passengers as determined by the designated airport authority for the immediately preceding taxation year.

2. The calculation of the payment in lieu of taxes for the year.

(11) If subsection (2) applies, the designated airport authority shall, within a reasonable time, provide to the municipality, upon request, an auditor’s report verifying the passenger total that was reported for the taxation year by the designated airport authority.

(12) The designated airport authority shall provide to the Minister a copy of any information provided to the municipality under subsections (10) and (11) within 30 days after it is provided to the municipality.
