Formula for calculating land transfer tax

Most of the province has his own method to calculate the land transfer tax.

Here is the list of calculation for each province or territory in Canada

Percentage of the Land/Property value

This method applies to: British Columbia, Manitoba, New-Brunswick, Ontario, Prince-Edward Island

Some of these provinces has multiple range of percentage: British Columbia, Manitoba, Ontario and other only have a fixed percentage.

A variation of this method with a fixed price applies to: Alberta, NewfoundLand and Labrador, Northwest Territories, and Saskatchewan.

Nova Scotia gives municipalities the power to set their own Municipal Deed Transfer Tax rates.

Range of percentage

Used by British Columbia, Manitoba and Ontario

For this exemple we use 3 ranges of percentage

When the lowest number used is the Land/Property value, the calculation stops.

Range 1 = Lowest number between (Land/Property value or Range 1 maximum) x ( Provincial rate Range 1 / 100)
+
Range 2 = Lowest number between (Land/Property value or Range 2 maximum) - (Range 1 maximum) x ( Provincial rate Range 2 / 100)
+
Range 3 = Lowest number between (Land/Property value or Range 3 maximum) - (Range 2 maximum) x ( Provincial rate Range 3 / 100)
=
Total of transfer tax = Range 1 + Range 2 + Range 3

Calculation exemple

John just bouth a house for 550 000$ in British columbia.

Range 1 = Lowest number between (550 000$ or 200 000$) x ( 1 / 100) = 2000$
+
Range 2 = Lowest number between (550 000$ or 2 000 0000$) - (200 000$) x ( 2 / 100) = 7000$
+
Range 3 = Lowest number between (Land/Property value or Range 3 maximum) - (Range 2 maximum) x ( Provincial rate Range 3 / 100)
=
Total of transfer tax = 2000$ + 7000$ + Range 3 = 9000$

Fixed percentage

Used by New-Brunswick and Prince-Edward Island

Property/Land transfer tax = Land/Property value x ( Provincial rate / 100)

Calculation exemple

William just bouth a house for 250 000$ in New-Brunswick.

Property/Land transfer tax = 250 000$ x ( 1 / 100) = 2500$
