Transfer tax(Welcome tax), Montreal

The chart below lists the general transfer/welcome tax

On the portion of the value:


From 0 to $50,000:

0.5 %

Over $50,000 but not exceeding $250,000:

1.0 %

Over $250,000 but not exceeding $500,000:

1.5 %

Over $500,000:

2.0 %

As an example, taxation on a property value of $610,000 calculated on the above scale would be as follows:

The first $50,000 multiplied by 0.5%: $250
The next $200,000 multiplied by 1.0%: $2,000
The next $250,000 multiplied by 1.5%: $3,750
The last $110,000 multiplied by 2%: $2,200

Consequently, the total land transfer duties on this property would be $8,200.
