Land Transfer Tax

Purchasing land or interest in land in Ontario then you are required to pay the Provincial Land Transfer Tax

The Ministry of Finance is reviewing the land transfer tax (LTT) applicable on unregistered dispositions of a beneficial interest in land in order to improve administrative effectiveness and enforcement, and to ensure the integrity and equity of the LTT system. At this time, the Ministry has posted a consultation document on the Regulatory Registry, which sets out a proposed approach to facilitate the payment and administration of the LTT under section 3 of the Land Transfer Tax Act in certain circumstances.

The Ministry is requesting your feedback on or before August 28, 2017. For more information visit:
