Certain things in Canada are non-taxable. Basic groceries, prescription drugs, freight transportation services, and even gambling winnings (according to CasinoValley) are not taxed at all. However, the government doesn’t mind profiting from home buyers. You must pay a land transfer tax when you buy a home. It can be quite a hefty sum of money, depending on the price of the property. We advise you to plan ahead and calculate this tax at the time of planning your budget for buying a home. That way, it won’t become an unpleasant surprise charge that you can’t afford.

If you purchase land or an interest in land in Ontario you are required to pay the Provincial Land Transfer Tax (PLTT). If you have purchased this land or an interest in land located in Toronto, you are required to pay the Municipal Land Transfer Tax (MLTT) in addition to the PLTT.
