If you have purchased a newly built home, you could qualify for the New Home HST Rebate in Ontario. Available through the Canada Revenue Agency, the Ontario New Home HST Rebate has specific eligibility requirements.

Everything can be personally prepared and submitted to Canada Revenue Agency. However, applicants often find it valuable to work with a rebate specialist.

Supporting financial documents are required to account for the expenses associated with the new home. More importantly, proof of occupancy is usually needed because the property must be occupied as a principal residence. Everything must be submitted within two years of closing.
