2) HST REBATES

GST portion: maximum 36% rebate $6300 up to $350,000 ... rebate pro-rated
$350,000 to $450,000 ... NO REBATE over $450,000
example:
$350,000 x 5% = $17,500
36% rebate = $17,500 x 36% = $6300
Net GST = $17,500 - $6300 = $11,200

PST portion: maximum 71.43% rebate = $26,250 ... No rebate over $525,000
example:
$350,000 x 7% = $24,500
71.43% rebate = $24,500 x 71.43% = $17,500
Net PST = $24,500 - $17,500 = $7000 (Net same as 2% of purchase price)

TOTAL HST on a $350,000 purchase = $11,200 plus $7000 = $18,200

example: GST on $400,000
$400,000 x 5% = $20,000
rebate: $6300 x (450-400)/100 = 6300 x 50/100 = $3150
Net GST = $20,000 - $3100 = $16,850

example: HST on $525,000
$525,000 x 7% = $36,750
rebate 71.43%= $36,750 x 71.43% = $26,250
Net PST = $36,750 - $26,250 = $10,500 (Net sames as 2% of purchase price)
