Here are expert tips on navigating the HST Rebate for new homes.
Retain All Your Records
When you’re building a home from the ground up or renovating your existing property, it’s imperative that you keep a copy of all your records. The rebate is designed to give homeowners back a portion of the amount they spent on HST (Harmonized Sales Tax) during construction. When you submit your application, you will need to prove that you did, in fact, pay HST for the services and materials used for the project. To learn exactly which documents and records to provide, consult with the Rebate4U team, who will help you get organized for your application.
