In Quebec, there is a bracketed land transfer tax system. You only pay the corresponding land transfer tax that falls within the ranges in the table. If you bought a house worth $500,000, the land transfer tax would be broken down like this:

First $50,000

$250

Next $200,000

Montreal

In Montreal, there are additional tax brackets. Unlike Toronto, where the land transfer tax is doubled, the Montreal land transfer tax is only a little bit more. The tax brackets are as follows:

Tax on the portion of the purchase

Rate

… up to $50,000

0.5%

… between $50,001 and $250,000

1.0%

… between $250,001 and $500,000

1.5%

… between $500,001 and $1 million

2.0%

… over $1 million

2.5%

Because the brackets are the same up until $500,000, you only notice a difference with houses valued at more than half a million dollars.
That same $500,000 house would owe taxes like this:

Value

Tax Owed

First $50,000

However, a Montreal home worth $1 million would owe this tax:

If that house were in Gatineau, the tax would only be $13,500.
