How to file the transaction levy or exemption form
You must complete and remit to LAWPRO the civil litigation and or real estate transaction summary form(s) for levy surcharges along with the quarterly payments (if applicable). LAWYERS and LAW FIRMS must list, on the transaction summary form or on an accompanying attachment, the names of all LAWYERS whose transactions are included on the form.
LAWYERS may delegate to their firms the responsibility of completing and remitting to LAWPRO the civil litigation and or real estate transaction summary form(s) along with the quarterly payments. However, it remains the responsibility of the individual LAWYER to ensure that the surcharge forms are submitted accurately and on time to LAWPRO.
The transaction levies must be accumulated and paid quarterly within thirty days of the quarterly period ending on the last day of March, June, September and December.

LAWYERS who are exempt from paying the transaction levy surcharge must file the exemption form once every year, by April 30th. LAWYERS admitted into practice after that date should file the exemption form within 30 days of the next quarterly period ending on the last day of June, September or December.
