And the series of Tax Tips continues…this week’s information will be helpful to those individuals who purchased a home for the first time. This tax credit was introduced in 2009 and is completely independent from the Home Buyer’s Loan program by CRA.
If you are a first-time homebuyer, a person with a disability, or an individual buying a home on behalf of a related person with a disability, you may be able to claim a non-refundable tax credit of up to $750 for the acquisition of a qualifying home acquired after January 27, 2009 (closing after this date).
Are you eligible? Find out more information on CRA’s Home Buyer Tax Credit (HBTC)
We would be interested to hear whether you find these types of government programs helpful.
