    Buying a house for the first time is a big and important decision in your life. As someone who represents you and looks out for your best interest, I would like to introduce you to the First-Time Home Buyers’ Tax Credit.

    First-Time Home Buyer’s Credit (FTHBC) is a government program geared towards buyers like you. The objective is to reduce costs associated with purchasing a home. As a first time buyer, you are eligible for a 15% income tax credit on a maximum of $5,000 of home purchase costs such as legal fees and land transfer taxes. It can be claimed for the taxation year that you acquired the house.

    You are considered to be a first time buyer if neither you and your spouse or common-law partner has owned and lived in another home in the year of the purchase or in any of the four previous years.  

    Please also check the information under the RRSP area. Using your RRSP savings to purchase your first home is a perk available only to those who haven't owned property in the past five years.

    Also available to first time buyers is a rebate of the land transfer tax, up to $2,000. See the article under Land Transfer Tax Rebates.
