Moving Expenses


Recommended Posts

Hello S L,

Please see the note below as per the CRA.

Cost of selling your old home includes the following:

    notary or legal fees  < ---- SEE BELOW *
    real estate commission
    mortgage penalty when the mortgage is paid off before maturity


The cost of buying your new home includes legal or notary fees you paid to buy your new home, as well as any taxes paid (other than GST/HST) for the transfer or registration of title to the new home.

Thanks Geo123

I saw that direction from the CRA already (did some sleuthing before I sent in this help request) but it does not clear up my question because I am not clear on whether the Property Transfer Tax is considered a "tax paid for the transfer or registration of a new home."
