GST/HST new housing rebate application for owner-built houses

Date Posted
30 August 2019

If you’re a property owner filling out a GST/HST new housing rebate application, it’s important to comply with all the guidelines, and provide all the requisite paperwork. You will be using the GST/HST new housing rebate application if you’ve built a brand new house, or if you’ve made a substantial renovation to your house.

How the GST/HST new housing rebate application for owner-built houses works

You are also eligible for a GST/HST rebate if you’ve built a major addition to your house, or if you’ve converted a non-residential property into a residential property. While the GST/HST new housing rebate application is accessible from Canada Revenue Agency, some individuals find it valuable to hire tax specialists like Rebate4U.

How do I apply for the HST rebate on new house?

Like other tax incentives, CRA requires eligible property owners to complete necessary paperwork when applying for a rebate – in this case the GST/HST new housing rebate application. There are many qualifying requisites, and property owners must submit supporting paperwork, invoices, and legal contracts. For many, the process can be both arduous and time consuming, and here, the experts at Rebate4U can be quite valuable. As rebate specialists, Rebate4U can organize, assemble, and submit the full application.      

Who is eligible for HST new home rebate?

To be eligible for the HST new home rebate, the house must be the primary residence for yourself or for your close relation. If an individual other than the primary claimant signs a GST/HST new housing rebate application, a legal Power of Attorney must be included.

With regards to occupancy, you don’t have to submit proof with your application, but it’s possible that you may be asked for proof later. In general, you have two years to claim a rebate - from completion date of construction or completion of a substantial renovation.

Do you pay GST on a new house?

If you purchase or construct a new home (or condo) you will be required to pay the GST (Federal Goods and Services Tax) or the HST (Harmonized Sales Tax) – all depending on the province that you reside in. The tax is paid on the purchase price of the property. In most cases, there are two ways to pay this taxable amount – with cash on the closing day of the purchase, or built into your mortgage. Here again, with good planning and expert advice, the in-house professionals at Rebate4U can help in expediting the entire process.

How much is GST/HST on a new house?

In Ontario, a total of 13% HST is charged on the purchase of a new house. This consists of 5% in Federal Tax and 8% in Ontario Provincial Tax. If your builder has incorporated the HST into the purchase price of your home (or condo), it will automatically be part of your mortgage. There are, however, situations where you may be obliged to pay the HST tax upfront. When applying for the HST rebate, all of this information is submitted in the GST/HST new housing rebate application (or with help from the team at Rebate4U).
