BC Budget


The new BC Budget has made some changes that will impact home buyers. Below are a summary of changes from Tony Spagnuolo

There are no changes to the first time home buyer exemption limits.

All buyers will no longer pay property transfer tax on new primary residence purchased up to $750,000 (Must be a Canadian Citizen or Permanent Resident).

Property transfer tax is now 3% for any portion amount over $2,000,000. This is a increase from 2% to 3%.

It appears the BC Government is looking to profit on the high end price sales and attempting to encourage new construction.

The RRSP contribution deadline to enjoy the tax break for 2015 is Monday February 29th

If you are a FIRST TIME HOMEBUYER and are holding/accumulating down payment funds in cash or a non tax savings structure AND don't think you'll be buying for at least 90 days, consider putting up to $25,000 of your down payment into a RRSP before the deadline.

WHY? Well, if you put your $$ into an RRSP by February 29th, technically you can withdraw up to $25,000 of your RRSP on or after May 30th to use towards your down payment as a first time homebuyer AND reap the tax break for against your 2015 or 2016 taxes!

YESSIREE - that's a legitimate double dip. The KEY is that the funds need only be vested in a RRSP a minimum of 90 days before withdrawal to realize both benefits.
