What does the Quebec's Land Transfer Tax represents?

Real estate transfer taxes (also called “welcome tax”) require you, when purchasing a property, to pay registration fees to the municipality. Historically, following cuts by the provincial government, the main objective of this tax was to provide municipalities with an additional source of revenue.

These rights apply at the transfer of a real estate property, whether through a sale, donation, exchange or bequest.
