Land Transfer Tax Calculator

Land transfer tax, sometimes called a property transfer tax, is a tax on the purchase of property. The amount of the land transfer tax varies widely based on your province and sometimes even the city where the property is located, as well as the value of the property. If you’re a first-time buyer, you may not have to pay a land transfer tax or you may be eligible for a reduced land transfer tax, depending on where you’re buying your home. Sometimes the taxes are tiered, which means that you’ll pay a certain percentage up to a particular purchase price, and then a greater percentage on a particular amount on top of that, for example: 1 per cent on property that is valued to $300,000, 1.5 per cent on anything valued between $300,000 and $500,000, and then 2 per cent on anything valued at more than $500,000. Our land transfer tax calculator will determine the amount you’ll have to pay once you enter the property location, city, and selling price.
