Did You Buy A New Home?

First time home buyers can claim a $5,000 tax credit, but what if this is not your first home?

  • Do you have a family member who qualifies for the Disability Tax Credit?
  • Is the new home more accessible to the individual or
  • Is it better suited to their needs?

If so, you qualify for the Home Buyers Amount even if this is not your first home. The $5,000 tax credit translates into $750 in your pocket.  Not bad eh?

For more information consult CRA – Home Buyers’ Amount

What if I purchased a home previously and forgot to claim it?

No problem!  That’s what the form T1-ADJ form is for.  It’s a simple one page form that my 8 year old could fill out.
