Land Transfer Tax

Buyers in most areas will have to add Land Transfer Taxes to their closing costs

Land transfer taxes are a part of the process unless you live in Alberta, Saskatchewan, or rural Nova Scotia. These taxes, levied on properties that are changing hands, are the responsibility of the buyer. In Toronto Land Transefer Tax is paid to both the Provincial and Municipal Governments.

Many provinces have multi-tiered taxation systems that can sometimes be difficult to understand. If you buy a property for $500 000 in Toronto, for example, 1 per cent is charged on the first $55,000, 2 per cent is charged on $55,000 - $250,000, while the $250,000 - $400,000 range is taxed at 2.5 per cent, with a combined Land Transfer Tax of 4% for anything above $400,000 So when buying a home in Toronto for $500,000, Your combined Land Transfer Tax Bill is, $12,200
