Ontario Land Transfer Tax Calculator

Home buyers in most large Canadian centres have to add Land Transfer Taxes ("LTT") to their list of closing costs. Unless you live in Alberta, Saskatchewan, or rural Nova Scotia, Land Transfer Taxes (or property purchase taxes) are a basic fact of life.

Land Transfer Taxes, levied on properties changing hands, are the responsibility of the purchaser. Depending on where you live, the taxes can range from 0.5% to 2.5% of the total value of the property.
Use my Land Transfer Tax Calculator Tool below to estimate the LTT on your residential or commercial property purchase.

Many provinces have multi-tiered taxation systems and these can be complicated. If you purchase a property for $260,000 in Ontario, for example, 0.5% is charged on the first $55,000; 1% is charged on $55,000 to $250,000, and 1.5% is charged on $250,000 to $400,000.

More information is available on Ontario Land Transfer Tax information page, or you can visit the Ontario Minister of Revenue Website and refer to Ontario Tax Bulletin LTT 4-2003.

Effective April 21, 2017, a 15% Non-Resident Speculation Tax is imposed on the purchase or acquisition of an interest in residential property located in the Greater Golden Horseshoe by individuals who are not citizens or permanent residents of Canada or by foreign corporations (foreign entities) or taxable trustees. This new tax is in addition to Ontario's current Land Transfer Tax.

We worked with Kim to sell our home in summer 2021 and couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Kim’s invaluable insights and intimate knowledge of the market in the area meant we could confidently prepare and list our home even in the uncertain conditions that existed at the time. Kim’s personability also made her a delight to work with and I would be happy to recommend her to anyone!

We were referred to Lori and the VanDinther Team when we needed some trustworthy advice when deciding whether to renovate and stay or look for a more suitable already renovated home. Lori and her team provided unbiased solid advice based on their wealth of knowledge and experience in our market area. I would highly recommend the VanDinther Team for any Real Estate need you may have.

We had a very good experience with Kimberly. Her knowledge of the area is excellent and she provided honest and insightful advice about different locations. She was responsive to our preferences. We couldn't attend our second pre-closing visit so she went herself and provided us with a video walk through which was really helpful. Her recommendations for services in the area were also a nice touch.

Kim was our realtor and she was great! She is very knowledgeable about the Hamilton area and seemed to have our best interest in mind when helping us find a home. Some realtors can be pushy on you to buy quickly so they can collect commission, but we didn’t feel that way with Kim at all. Kim made the experience as enjoyable as it could be as first time home buyers.
