Use the Land Transfer Tax Calculator to better understand how land transfer tax is calculated across Canada and how it impacts your mortgage affordability
The Land Transfer Tax Calculator is a useful tool to figure out one of the more forgotten costs when purchasing a home.
Every province, except Alberta and Saskatchewan, charges a land transfer tax. Alberta and Saskatchewan charge a registration fee in lieu of this, however this fee tends to be much smaller in comparison. Since the land transfer tax is calculated as a percentage of the property price, it can add up to a lot, especially on higher priced properties. The Calculator takes all the needed variables into account including: your property price, province (calculation of tax varies across provinces), municipality in the case of Toronto which charges an additional municipal tax, and whether you're a first time home buyer which determines whether you would qualify for a rebate in some provinces.

While the Land Transfer Tax Calculator will be accurate in most cases, there could be circumstances when the total tax payable is not exact. In certain provinces (i.e. Nova Scotia) the property tax could vary across municipalities. Therefore this calculator is best used as an estimate for illustration purposes only.
