Tax Information for New Home Buyers
Tax savings aren’t the only reason to invest in an RRSP. With the Federal government’s Home Buyers’ Plan (HBP), first-time homebuyers have the opportunity to put that tax-free cash towards a new home.
- Each individual involved in the purchase of the home may withdraw a maximum of $35,000 from their RRSP — provided it is the first home for all parties involved (new home buyer is defined as not having the title of a home in your name in the previous four years).
- The home must be used as a principle residence, and all funds must be withdrawn from the RRSP within 30 days of the property’s closing date.
- You have 15 years to repay your RRSP ‘loan’, and payments must start two years after the initial home purchase.
- Every year, you will receive a notice of assessment stating the amount you have repaid, your total balance, and the required amount for your next payment.
- If you have recently divorced there are some exceptions to the definition of “new home buyer” that you may be eligible for.
