There are a few situations in which you might find yourself looking to apply for one of the two Ontario HST Rebates. You’re likely applying to get money back on a newly built or renovated home, or you could also apply for an HST rebate on a new condo. Either way, the HST rebate program is a lucrative opportunity, enabling many property owners across the province to put thousands of dollars back into their pockets.
Essentially, every purchase in Ontario is taxed an additional 13% which is HST or Harmonized Sales Tax. When buying, building, or renovating a new home, the government offers to return a portion of this tax to the owner. In many cases, this rebate is substantial. Unfortunately, confusion about the terms, eligibility and application can discourage qualified property owners from applying. But it doesn’t have to be daunting when you work with a rebate specialist you trust, like Rebate4U. Our team will even help you find out if you and your property are eligible for an Ontario HST rebate without charge.
Here are some tips for finding a rebate specialist for your application.

At Rebate4U, we’ve helped hundreds of Ontarians successfully apply for one of the HST rebate programs in Ontario.

Organized & Well-Informed
The best way to apply for any government rebate, including the HST Rebate on home renovations and new condos, is to be organized and keep copies of all your documents. Choosing a rebate specialist in Ontario to guide you throughout your application will be well-informed about the eligibility requirements so you can feel confident knowing what information to collect, including invoices and statements to best support your application process.
Unsurprisingly, there is a time limit when a property owner can submit their HST rebate application to Canada’s Revenue Agency for consideration. Being aware of deadlines and staying on task, you can trust that, even in a tight pinch or a short time frame, your specialists at Rebate4U will help you get your application put together and sent to the CRA quickly.
Sometimes property owners will try to apply for the HST Rebate on their own without the support of an advisor or rebate specialist. This can lead to application errors, sometimes as small as an incorrect detail or birthday, or in other cases, as significant as applying for the wrong rebate. If you receive a letter in the mail from the CRA, that could be understandably frightening, but Rebate4U can help.
