Ontario Land Transfer Tax

Ontario Land Transfer TaxOntario Land Transfer Tax is charged to the homebuyer and applies whenever a land or an interest in land in Ontario is purchased,

The applicant buyer pays the Ontario’s land transfer tax at the time of purchase, the term “land” includes any buildings, buildings to be constructed, and fixtures (such as light fixtures, built-in appliances, and cabinetry).

Land transfer tax is normally based on the amount paid for the land, in addition to the amount remaining on any mortgage or debt assumed as part of the arrangement to buy the land.

In some cases, land transfer tax is based on the fair market value of the land, for example, where:

  • The transfer of a lease with a remaining term that can exceed 50 years
  • The transfer of land is from a corporation to one of its shareholders, or
  • The transfer of land is to a corporation if shares of the corporation are issued.
