Key Components of Ontario Land Transfer Tax

Calculation of LTT

The calculation of LTT is tiered, with different rates applied to different portions of the purchase price. The higher the purchase price, the higher the applicable tax rate. Our lawyers carefully assess the purchase price and ensure accurate calculations are made to avoid any potential discrepancies.

First-Time Homebuyer Rebate

First-time homebuyers may be eligible for a rebate on a portion of the LTT, providing financial relief. To qualify, buyers must meet specific criteria, including residency requirements and the intention to occupy the property as their principal residence.

Additional LTT for Foreign Buyers

In certain situations, additional LTT may apply to foreign buyers. Our legal team assists clients in understanding these provisions, ensuring compliance and transparency throughout the transaction process.

Toronto Land Transfer Taxes

In addition to Ontario Land Transfer Tax, properties in Toronto are subject to a Municipal Land Transfer Tax (MLTT). The MLTT is calculated similarly to the provincial tax but involves separate calculations and rates.

First-Time Homebuyer Rebate

Similar to the provincial rebate, Toronto offers a rebate on the MLTT for first-time homebuyers. Our lawyers ensure that clients understand and navigate the application process for this rebate.
