I am e-mailing you to provide an update regarding Municipal Land Transfer Taxes.
My colleague, Ted McMeekin, Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing, heard from stakeholders, municipalities and Ontarians, as part of the review of the Municipal Act.
After looking at the feedback received, we’ve heard many concerns about the possibility of a municipal land transfer tax. Our government is committed to listening to the concerns of our constituents and this is why you’ll be pleased to know that we will not be providing municipalities with the option to levy a land transfer tax.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any further questions or comments on this or any other matter.
