Municipal Land Transfer Tax

The Municipal Land Transfer Tax (MLTT) is charged on properties purchased in Toronto and on disposition of all beneficial interests with closing dates on or after February 1, 2008.

Following the provincial government's Land Transfer Act and property transaction requirements, your lawyer will register your property transaction and at that time your MLTT will be collected. For more information on the collection of your MLTT, please contact your real estate lawyer.

Transition Rules: If your Purchase & Sale Agreement is executed on or before December 31, 2007 you are eligible for a full rebate.


Municipal Land Transfer Tax Rates


The MLTT will be charged on a graduated basis depending on the value of consideration paid for the property.

For property containing at least one, and not more than two, single family residences with a consideration value of:


Value of Consideration


Up to and including $55,000.00

0.5%  plus

$55,000.01 to $400,000.00

1.0%  plus

Over $400,000.00

FOR EXAMPLE: A home with a consideration value of $500,000.01 (excluding GST):



0 to $55,000.00

55,000.00 x 0.005 = $275.00

$55,000.01 to $400,000.00

$344,999.99 x 0.01= $3,450.00

$400,000.01 to $500,000.00

$99,999.99 x 0.02= $2,000.00

Total MLTT= $5,725.00
