Land Transfer Tax Details

MISSISSAUGA REAL ESTATE - Land Transfer Tax Information

  Mississauga Real Estate

One of the other additional expense to consider when Buying Mississauga and Niagara Real Estate is the Land Transfer Tax. This fee varies in every city.  Please use the handy calculator I have provided below so you can budget your purchase.

Purchasers in most large Canadian cities can add Land Transfer Taxes to their list of closing costs. Unless you live in Alberta, Saskatchewan, or rural Nova Scotia, land transfer taxes (or property purchase tax) are part of the deal. These taxes, levied on properties that are changing hands, are the responsibility of the purchaser. Depending on where you live, taxes can range from half of a percent to two percent of the total purchase price.

Many provinces have multi-tiered taxation systems that can be complicated. For example, if you purchase a property for $300,000 in Ontario, 0.5% is charged on the first $55,000, 1% is charged on $55,000 - $250,000, while the $250,000 - $400,000 range is taxed at 1.5%. Your total tax bill? $2,975.00.
