Land Transfer Tax – Closing Cost

When purchasing a home or condo in Ontario you will be required to pay land transfer tax. The land transfer tax is based on the purchase price of the property. The City of Toronto also has a Land Transfer Tax which is in addition to the provincial land transfer tax.
