Did you know about the 9% tax?

In Quebec, the majority of insurance policies is subject to a 9% tax. Therefore, when you buy a house, the mortgage loan has to be insured by the CMHC, Genworth, or Canada Garanty, and the Quebec government taxes the cost of the insurance policy.

This tax is payable at the notary when the deed of sale is signed.

Here is an example:

Purchase $300,000
Down payment: 5% $15,000
Insurance premium: 4.00%* of $285,000
*4.00% valid after March 17, 2017 (before March 17, 3.60%)
9% Tax $1,026

Although this amount is not insignificant, it is often forgotten in the buyer’s budget.
