Online banking payments:

You can pay your tax bill online through your bank account, as long as the service is provided by your financial institution. Make sure to enter your 10 digit reference number, without hyphen. This number appears on the right-hand corner of your payment stub. In order to avoid interest and late penalty fees, schedule your transaction in advance, and allow two business days for payment processing.

You can pay your bill at most financial institutions. Some may refuse to accept your payment so check with your bank first. If you pay through a banking machine allow at least 48 hours, excluding Saturdays, Sundays and holidays, for the payment to be processed thus avoiding interest and penalty charges.

Duties of transfert of immovables

Under provincial legislation, a duty on the transfer must be collected by the City for the transfer of any immovable located in the City.

Thresholds and rates established and effective as of January 1st, 2021

The rates of these duties are set as follows:
  • 0,5% on that part of the basis of imposition which does not exceed $52,800
  • 1% on that part of the basis of imposition which is in excess of $52,800 without exceeding $264,000
  • 1.5% on that part of the basis of imposition which is in excess of $264,000 without exceeding $500,000
  • 2% on that part of the basis of imposition which is in excess of $500,000 without exceeding $1,000,000
  • 2,5% on that part of the basis of imposition which exceeds $1,000,000
For example, for a basis of imposition of $1,150,000, the duty on the transfer would be:
  1. We multiply $52,800 by 0.5% = $264.00
  2. We multiply $211,200 by 1% = $2,112.00
  3. We multiply $236,000 by 1.5% = $3,540.00
  4. We multiply $500,000 by 2% = $10,000.00
  5. Finally, we multiply $150,000 by 2.5% = $3,750.00
  6. We add up the results. Therefore, for a basis of imposition of $1,150,000, the total duty on the transfer will be $19,666.00

Thresholds and rates established and effective before January 1st, 2021

The rates of these duties are set as follows:
  • 0,5% on that part of the basis of imposition which does not exceed $51,700
  • 1% on that part of the basis of imposition which is in excess of $51,700 without exceeding $258,600
  • 1.5% on that part of the basis of imposition which is in excess of $258,600 without exceeding $500,000
  • 2% on that part of the basis of imposition which is in excess of $500,000 without exceeding $1,000,000
  • 2,5% on that part of the basis of imposition which exceeds $1,000,000
For example, for a basis of imposition of $1,150,000, the duty on the transfer would be:
  1. We multiply $51,700 by 0.5% = $258.50
  2. We multiply $206,900 by 1% = $2,069.00
  3. We multiply $241,400 by 1.5% = $3,621.00
  4. We multiply $500,000 by 2% = $10,000.00
  5. Finally, we multiply $150,000 by 2.5% = $3,750.00
  6. We add up the results. Therefore, for a basis of imposition of $1,150,000, the total duty on the transfer will be $19,698.50

Payment of duties on the transfer

This duty is payable in one instalment within thirty (30) days of the mailing of the tax bill by the City. The basis of imposition for transfer duties will be the greatest of the following amounts:

  • The amount of the counterpart provided for the transfer of the immovable;
  • The amount of the counterpart stipulated for the transfer of the immovable; or
  • The amount of market value at the time of the transfer of the immovable. As mentioned in the Act respecting duties on transfers of immovables, the market value is the product obtained by multiplying the value entered on the roll for the unit or part corresponding to the transferred immovable, as the case may be, by the factor of the roll established
