This is a Home Buyers’ Tax levied by the Provincial Government when home-buyers become the new registered owners of the property they just purchased. This levy happens with each property transfer meaning someone could pay this levy a number of times throughout their lifetime of purchasing properties. However many times you may be required to pay it, you do not derive any additional benefits or put additional burdens on public services (except for minimal administrative costs) as compared to someone that does not move at all. In Manitoba’s case it already has a title registration fee of $70 which is not included in the land transfer tax.
