GST/HST and RESIDENTIAL REAL PROPERTY ISSUES
The new housing rebate was created to help home/condo owners offset the federal tax that is paid when purchasing or substantially renovating a home.
Many people sign a waiver assigning the New Housing Rebate to the builder of the new home or condo. But what many people do not realize is that generally every rebate claim is audited by the Canada Revenue Agency. As a result, numerous rebate claims are denied by the CRA each year leaving the home owner with a significant tax bill a year or two after they move into their new home.
There are two new housing rebates. The most common rebate is the one available to home/condo owners who either purchase a new primary place of residence or significantly renovate it.
The second rebate is for those who buy a new or substantially renovate a rental property to be used as the primary place of residence by renters.
In this 1-hour webinar, Diane will discuss the rules for both rebates.
This webinar may save you thousands of dollars... learn the rules for claiming the New Housing Rebates.
Learn ...
  • Who qualifies for the rebate
  • How much of the GST or HST you can recover
  • Landlords - find out if you qualify for the rebate
  • Find out what renovations qualify for the rebate
  • And more
This webinar deals with builders and renovators of residential properties that are subject to special GST/HST rules. Spend 1-hour with Diane as she provides an overview of these special rules to avoid unwanted audit assessments.
