Real estate holdings and transactions carry significant tax burdens imposed under complex legislation. Beyond simply raising revenue, governments increasingly use taxes on realty as means for pursuing policy goals. Property law is complicated enough with the result that practitioners all too frequently overlook the impact of the taxes on their transactions. But in the real estate sector, where transaction values are high, the taxes can add up quickly. How does one respond when the client looks to the law firm for advice on the potential pitfalls or savings in relation to transaction taxes?
This course will provide an overview of important current issues relating to the application of Goods and Services Tax, Provincial Sales Tax, Foreign Buyers Tax, and Vancouver’s Empty Homes Tax when advising in connection with residential real estate matters.
