Homeowners of a newly built or substantially renovated home in British Columbia are no longer able to apply for the provincial portion of the HST rebate.
The government cut the program in April and only those who have done extensive renovations or bought a newly built home with a closing date between July 2012 and April 2013 can still apply.
If you’ve done the work after that point or bought a newly purchased home, then you only qualify for a federal portion of the rebate, which only applies to properties that have a value of less than $450,000. In this case, you’re only eligible to receive a maximum rebate of $6,300.
Feel free to contact Rebate4U at 1-800-610-4510 if you have any additional questions.
