ARE YOU A FIRST-TIME HOME BUYER?

WANT A TAX CREDIT?

The First-Time Home Buyers Tax Credit (HBTC) is a non-refundable tax credit for eligible home buyers who buy a qualifying home after January 27, 2009. If you have a disability or are buying a home for a relative with a disability, you do not have to be a first-time home buyer.  The value of the Home Buyers Tax Credit is based on $5000 multiplied by the lowest federal income tax rate for the year. In 2013 the lowest federal income tax rate was 15 percent, and it remains the same in 2014, so the value of the HBTC would be $750.  To qualify for the First-Time Home Buyers Tax Credit, a home must be a housing unit located in Canada, including mobile homes, condominiums and apartments. Shares in co-op housing that provide an equity stake also qualify.  Also, you or the related person with a disability must intend to occupy the home as a principal place of residence no later than one year after buying it.

ARE YOU A POST SECONDARY GRADUATE?

NEED TO BORROW MONEY FOR A DOWN PAYMENT?

The Government of Saskatchewan is now taking applications for First Home Plan.  This new initiative allows eligible post-secondary graduates to borrow up to $10,000 of their unused

Graduate Retention Program (GRP) tax credits to put toward the down payment on their first home.  The plan will help recent graduates who have the income to qualify for a mortgage,

but may be having challenges saving for a down payment.

NEED TO GET RID OF AN OLD TV, COMPUTER OR STEREO?

Recycle your old or unused electronics by sweeping it into a local SARCAN near you.  Keep our landfills clear by recycling the following instead of taking them to the local dump: 

  • Desktop or Portal Computers (incl. keyboards & mice)
  • Printers, Fax Machines
  • TV Displays, Computer Monitors
  • Personal or Portable Audio/Video Systems (from home or auto)
  • Non-cellular Telephones

By the way, do you have any old, unwanted paint cans that you arenever going to use collecting dust in your basement or garage.  Full or not, SARCAN takes those, too.
