If you are purchasing a new build home from a builder you may be entitled to an HST rebate. You should note that most Ontario builders include such rebate in the purchase price and have you assign the rebate back to the builder on the closing of your transaction.
If your house is located in Ontario, you may be eligible to claim a provincial new housing rebate for some of the provincial part of the HST that you paid to buy the house.
You qualify for this rebate if you bought a new or substantially renovated house (including a new condominium unit, mobile home or floating home) from a builder or you bought a share of capital stock of a co‑op, and you meet the following conditions:
The provincial new housing rebates may be available even if the purchase price or fair market value, as the case may be, exceeds the maximum amounts ($450,000.00) for the GST/HST new housing rebate for some of the federal part of the HST.
The maximum Ontario new housing rebate amount that is available is $24,000.
If the builder does not pay or credit your rebate, mail your completed rebate application form, including any applicable provincial rebate schedule and other required documents to:
Summerside Tax Centre
275 Pope Road
Summerside PE C1N 6A2
