Municipal Land Transfer Tax (MLTT) Changes      
Posted 05-05-2017

Toronto’s City Council has approved an increase in the Municipal Land Transfer Tax effective March 1, 2017. This news comes after the recent decision to increase the first-time homebuyer’s rebate from $3,725 to $4,475. The tax hike is widely criticized by the public and advocacy groups such as the Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB) and the Ontario Real Estate Association (OREA) who view it as a hindrance to affordable home ownership. Additionally, the city has changed its rebate program by restricting eligibility to Canadian citizens and permanent residents.
