The form lists it as follows:

We, Name of Recipent) of the (City, Town, etc.) of (Name of City, Town, etc.) in the (County, Regional Municipality, etc.) of (Name of County, Regional Municipality, etc.), Province of Ontario, and Name of Donor) of the (City, Town, etc.) of (Name of City, Town, etc.) in the (County, Regional Municipality, etc.) of (Name of County, Regional Municipality, etc.), Province of Ontario.

All underlined is the example I should fill in. I don't know why Government documents are so damn hard to fill out. :mad:

Edit: Never mind, I got your example l69norm. Thanks for your help.

Oh,, you gonna buy car form Alberta and ship it back to ontario to avoid the 7% PST tax? and declare as a gift from a family member.
No I'm not going to spend a penny on the vehicle itself. It is just a straight transfer of ownership. Only money I'm going to spend is the registration, paper work, etc.

Can this really be done? I thought you had to live at the same address, no?
Hmm, after reading the mto site, this may be possible :)

Hello,

I am trying to change ownership of a vehicle to my mother. Who can I get to sign as the commissioner? I really want to avoid paying a lawyer/notary, but if I have to, any recommendations? What other options do I have?

Thanks!

some MTO offices have a commissioner on-site that can do it for you. call services ontario or look at the site for the location nearest you.

If you live around the North York area. I can refer you to someone who is a Commissioner of Oaths and will sign it for no fee.

yup, this is correct. I think it's a $10-$25 cash fee for them to do this.

most MTO ofices has a commissioner there.

hey, just wanted to bring this back up and ask a similar question.
If my dad is planning on buying a car as a gift for me, does he purchase it himself, then declare it as a gift to me, in which we then avoid the retail sales tax?
If I understand you correctly, your dad wants to buy you a car from a third party (used car dealership, private sale) and you want to avoid the tax completely?

Impossible. The purpose of this Sworn Statement is to allow tax-free transfer between relatives. Because your dad doesn't own the car right now, how can he transfer the car to you? You need to pay HST to the dealership regardless who register the car first. After that, you can do the tax free transfer. But I see no point of doing that, just register the car to your name during the registration process.

Wondering if anyone knows the answer to this, can I be considered a "son-in-law" if my common law girlfriend's (2 years living together) father gifts me his car?

Thanks
