The Ministry of Finance has authorized a new Property Transfer Tax (PTT) form (version 28) effective February 21, 2017. The form has been updated due to a change in the First Time Home Buyers program threshold amount, and is available for download through the Land Title and Survey Authority of BC (LTSA) website or the myLTSA portal. See the Ministry of Finance announcement.

IMPORTANT: ONLY VERSION 28 OF THE PROPERTY TRANSFER TAX FORM WILL BE ACCEPTED EFFECTIVE MARCH 10, 2017.

To facilitate the transition, if a PTT form version 27 has been executed by the purchaser prior to February 21, 2017, and the purchaser is not claiming the First Time Home Buyers exemption, the signed PTT Form version 27 can be submitted electronically with a copy retained in your files.

For purchasers claiming the First Time Home Buyers exemption, the PTT form version 28 must be submitted electronically starting February 21, 2017.

Other updates have been included in the PTT form version 28:

  • The links to information and instruction guides have been re-activated.
  • The decimal issue has been resolved.

Please refer to the Help instructions for PTT form filing information.
