NOTICE OF ASSESSMENT
WHAT IS AN NOA?
A Notice of Assessment form is usually a 3-4 page form that Revenue Canada sends back to you as a summary of your received Tax Return. It will either contain a refund cheque or a bill for your outstanding taxes for the previous tax year. It will include the date, your full name, SIN number, tax year and tax centre clearly indicated in the top row of the page.
All pages of this document need to be provided.
WHY DO LENDERS REQUIRE NOAs?
To confirm if there are any outstanding taxes owed to Revenue Canada.
To confirm your taxable income as per line 150.
Tax arrears could be placed on the title of your home and take priority over any mortgage financing in a sale of the property. The lender will require the tax arrears to be brought up to date before advancing mortgage funds.
