How To Calculate Your Land Transfer Tax
LAND TRANSFER TAX CALCULATOR
Consider The Total Cost of a Home Purchase
Land transfer taxes are calculated based on the purchase price of your property. Each province sets its own land transfer tax rates, as do some municipalities. Use the calculator to find the land transfer tax.
Land transfer tax (LTT) is often overlooked when considering the total cost of purchasing a home. All provinces have a land transfer tax, except Alberta and Saskatchewan, which instead levy a much smaller transfer fee. In most provinces the tax is calculated as a percentage of property value, using asking price as a close estimate.
To help offset the cost, Ontario, British Columbia, Prince Edward Island, and the City of Toronto offer land transfer tax rebates for first-time homebuyers.
