Vacant Unit Tax declaration period and online portal - now open

The Vacant Unit Tax (VUT) declaration period and corresponding online portal are now open.

Residential property owners can now complete their 2022 occupancy declaration. The deadline to declare a property’s occupancy status for 2022 is March 16, 2023. Late declarations will be accepted until April 30. In 2023, the late fee will be waived to provide additional time for residents to complete their declaration. 

The mandatory declaration is primarily completed online directly in the online portal, through the Vacant Unit Tax home page on, or MyService Ottawa.

Several options are also available to help residential property owners requiring assistance in completing the declaration:

  • Call Revenue Services at 613-580-2444 and selecting option 3 to complete a
    declaration over the phone, or to book an in-person appointment at the Mary Pitt
    Centre at 100 Constellation Drive.

  • Call 613-580-2400 to contact the City using Canada Video Relay Service – which
    uses internet and mobile phone technologies to connect the caller with real-time
    sign language interpretation.
