Land Transfer Tax
- A tax imposed by some provincial governments ranging from 0.5 to 4.0 per cent and paid by the purchaser of a property at closing. It is based on the selling price of the house and is applied whenever a property is transferred from one owner to another. Some provinces may have rebates available if you are a first time homebuyer.
