$4,000 tax break for first time home buyers.
“Ontario REALTORS® have lobbied for and won the first tax break for first-time buyers in over ten years. This tax break will help make home ownership more affordable by providing some relief to those Ontarians that need it most – young families.
This news came today as part of Ontario’s Fall Economic Statement. In the statement, Minister Charles Sousa committed to increasing the land transfer tax (LTT) rebate for first-time buyers from $2,000 to $4,000. The increase was done specifically to help first-time buyers enter the housing market. Buyers can start claiming the rebate eefective January 1, 2017.” – OREA
