17.1. There shall be an exemption from the payment of transfer duties if the transferee declares that in the year that follows the registration of the transfer, the immovable will form part of an agricultural operation registered in his name in accordance with a regulation made under section 36.0.1 of the Act respecting the Ministère de l’Agriculture, des Pêcheries et de l’Alimentation (chapter M-14).
If the municipality has not received proof, on the expiry of the time limit, that the immovable has become part of an operation referred to in the first paragraph, or the immovable is the subject of another transfer before the municipality receives such proof, the transferee having invoked the exemption becomes bound to pay the transfer duties, the amount of which shall be increased by the amount of interest calculated at the rate referred to in section 11 that accrues from the date of registration of the transfer to the time of payment of the principal. The account contemplated in that section that is then sent to the debtor must inform the debtor of the amount of interest having accrued to the date of the drawing up of the account and of the method of calculation of the amount to be added for each full day after that date but before the payment of the principal.
