Land Transfer Tax Calculator

When you acquire property or land, you pay land transfer tax to the province when the transaction closes.

The tax rates calculated on the value of the consideration are:

  • 0.5% on the first $55,000 of the purchase price, plus
  • 1.0% on the amount exceeding $ 55,000 up to and including $250,000, plus
  • 1.5% on the amount exceeding $250,000 up to and including $400,000, plus
  • 2.0% on the amount exceeding $400,000 up to and including $2,000,000, plus
  • 2.5% above $2,000,000.

The land transfer tax rate is the same for residents and non-residents of Canada. Properties purchased within the City of Toronto are subject to an additional municipal land transfer tax.
