about Ontario Land Transfer TAX

                    What is Ontario Land Transfer Tax (LTT)? 

   Ontario Land Transfer Tax (LTT) is a fee imposed by the provincial government when real estate is purchased or acquired in Ontario. It is calculated based on the purchase price of the property.


               Who Pays Ontario Land Transfer Tax?

   In Ontario, the buyer of the property is responsible for paying the Land Transfer Tax. This tax is typically due upon closing and is paid by the buyer’s lawyer or closing agent


                  How Is Ontario Land Transfer Tax Calculated?

   Here are the Land Transfer Tax (LTT) Calculated for both properties within the City of Toronto and those outside the City of Toronto according to the Government of Ontario’s guidelines:

   For properties located within the City of Toronto:
  1. Up to $55,000: 0.5% of the purchase price
  2. $55,000 to $250,000: 1.0% of the purchase price
  3. $250,000 to $400,000: 1.5% of the purchase price
  4. $400,000 to $2,000,000: 2.0% of the purchase price
  5. Over $2,000,000: 2.5% of the purchase price
For properties located outside the City of Toronto:
      1. Up to $55,000: 0.5% of the purchase price
      2. $55,000 to $250,000: 1.0% of the purchase price
      3. $250,000 to $400,000: 1.5% of the purchase price
      4. $400,000 to $2,000,000: 1.5% of the purchase price for the first $400,000 plus 2.0% of the amount exceeding $400,000

                       Are There Any Rebates Available in Ontario? 


          Yes, there are rebates available in Ontario, particularly for first-time homebuyers. The Ontario government offers a Land Transfer Tax (LTT) rebate to help alleviate some of the financial burden associated with purchasing a home. The maximum rebate amount is $4,000.

        The rebate is applicable to both the provincial and municipal Land Transfer Tax for eligible homebuyers. However, it’s important to note that the rebate will cover the LTT up to a maximum home value of $368,333. Properties valued above this threshold are still eligible for the rebate, but the amount will be capped at $4,000.

        To qualify for the rebate, the buyer must meet certain criteria, including being at least 18 years old, occupying the property as their principal residence within nine months of the purchase, and not having previously owned a home or an interest in a home anywhere in the world.

        Additionally, a partial refund may be available for eligible buyers under certain circumstances. It’s recommended to consult with a real estate professional or the Ontario Ministry of Finance for specific eligibility requirements and details regarding the rebate process.
