Transfer tax

Since January 1992, the taxation of the immovables transfers tax is compulsory.

Consult the Act respecting duties on transfers of immovables

The amount of the duties on the transfer of immovables is calculated on the greatest among the following amounts:

  • The purchase price of the property;
  • The amount of the transaction registered on the act of transfer;
  • The amount of the real market value of the building or property at the time of sale.

The amount of the duties on the transfer of immovables for 2024 is calculated according to the following scale:

0,5 % on the first 58 900 $;
1,0 % on the amount in excess of 58 900 $ but not exceeding 294 600 $;
1,5 % on the amount which exceeds 294 600 $.

***The municipality does not reissue a property tax bill following a property transfer. However, the new owner is responsible for making sure the taxes are paid.***
