Property Tax

Duties on Real Estate Transfers

Often called a “welcome tax,” a property transfer tax is an amount of money payable on the transfer of a property. The tax is paid by the acquirer of the property. For several years now, under section 12.1 of the Act respecting duties on transfers of immovables (CQLR, c. D‑15.1), transfer taxes have also been “exigible from any person who becomes an assignee of the immovable after the person who was a party to the transfer.” If there are two or more acquirers, they are jointly responsible for paying the taxes. Municipalities are required to collect transfer taxes on all property transfers in their territory.
