Are You Ready? Retiring the Property Transfer Tax Return PDF Forms

In July 2020, the Property Tax Branch (PTB) of the BC Ministry of Finance launched a new PTT return that aligns with LTSA’s new Web Filing

Effective December 14, 2020, PTT returns must be submitted using the new web form as the following PDF forms will no longer be available:

  • Property Transfer Tax Return (FIN 530)(PDF)
  • Additional Property Transfer Tax Return (FIN 532)(PDF)
  • Property Transfer Tax Calculator for Residential (FIN536)(PDF)

Calculating the additional property transfer tax and further 2% tax on residential property over $3,000,000 can be done in the new web form.

Some features of web filing include:

  • Dynamic entry
  • Auto-populated information
  • All-in-one calculations
  • Built-in help
  • Drag and drop attachments
  • Summary breakdown of calculations
