Welcome Tax Calculator

How to calculate your welcome tax?

To calculate this tax, it is necessary to base it on the higher value between the municipal assessment and the purchase price.

From this amount, simply distribute it according to the following brackets: *

Bracket Amount
$0 to $58,900 0.5% of the amount in this bracket.
$58,900 to $294,600 1.0% of the amount in this bracket.
$294,600 and more 1.5% of the amount in this bracket.
$500,000 and more 1.5% to 3% of the amount in this bracket, depending on the municipality*.

Then you add these sums.

The total thus obtained corresponds to the amount of your welcome tax.

You can also make your life easier by using the calculator available to your right :)
