The Government of Saskatchewan announced that a new tax credit will take effect on January 1, 2012. First-time home buyers in Saskatchewan that are eligible for the government's new tax break will receive a non-refundable income tax credit of up to $1,100. As well, persons with disabilites purchasing a more accessible home can access the tax credit even if it is not their first home.
