Land Transfer Tax

In general, if you buy land or an interest in land in Ontario, you must pay Ontario's land transfer tax, whether or not the transfer is registered at one of Ontario's land registry office.

Land includes any buildings, buildings to be constructed, and fixtures (such as light fixtures, built-in appliances and cabinetry).

The land transfer tax payable 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:

    a lease can exceed 50 years;
    land is transferred from a corporation to one of its shareholders; or
    land is transferred to a corporation, if shares of the corporation are issued.

Other Types of Land Taxes

Municipalities impose a yearly municipal property tax on land within the municipality. If you have questions about municipal property tax, you should contact the municipality in which the land is located. If the land is in an unorganized territory (an area without municipal organization) provincial land tax may apply rather than municipal property tax.
