Harmonized Sales Tax or HST, was implemented on July 1, 2010, harmonizing the Federal GST of 5% with the Provincial PST of 8% into HST of 13%. The HST can form a large part of the Home Closing Costs or Home Legal Costs in your Purchase Transaction. Depending on your type of property purchase, the HST implications may differ. If you are purchasing a newly built property from a Builder as an investment and you do not move into the property, you are not eligible for the HST New Housing Rebate portion of the Purchase Price. In this scenario, you will have to repay the lost HST New Housing Rebate to the Builder as an adjustment on final closing.
While you are not eligible for HST New Housing Rebate when you are buying for investment, you will be eligible for an HST Rental Rebate, if you enter into a lease to a Tenant to move into the property for at least a one-year period and apply for the HST Rental Rebate within 2 years of your final closing. The HST Rental Rebate is in the same amount as the lost HST New Housing Rebate that you would have paid to the builder as an adjustment on closing.
At Kaur Law Professional Corporation, we can prepare, complete and forward your Rental Rebate Application to CRA so that you may receive your rebate cheque within 90 days of application.
