How Much Is Land Transfer Tax?
Canada, Land Transfer Tax is imposed on real property typically
calculated on the value of the property being registered in a land
registration office. Land Transfer Tax is therefore the responsibility
of the purchaser of the property.
Transfer Tax may not be imposed in all provinces and the means of
clculation will vary by provincial jurisdiction.
Ontario, the current tax is as follows:
0.5% on the first
1.0% on the portion between $55,000-$250,000
on balance over $250,000
If the land falls under the definition
of single-family and duplex residences, an additional tax of 0.5%
(1.5%+0.5% or 2%) applies to consideration over $400,000.
more simple way to calculate is:
- $55,000 0.005
$55,000 - $250,000 (0.01
x Amount) minus $275
$250,001 - $400,000 (0.015
x Amount) minus $1,525
$400,000 + (0.02
x Amount) minus $3,525
