Important Tax Information for First Time Homebuyers:
Do you Qualify for a First-Time Home Buyers' (FTHB) Tax Credit? The costs associated with purchasing a home, such as legal fees, disbursements and land transfer taxes, can be a particular burden for first-time homebuyers who must pay these costs, as well as save money for a down payment. To assist first-time homebuyers with the costs associated with the purchase of a home, the Government of Canada introduced a FTHB Tax Credit in 2009 — a $5,000 non-refundable income tax credit amount on a qualifying home acquired after January 27, 2009. The Credit will provide up to $750 in federal tax relief starting in 2009 to eligible individuals.
