|The Home Buyers Plan|
The Home Buyers' Plan (HBP) is a government program which allows first-time home buyers like you to gain financial autonomy. You can become a homeowner while building a retirement fund within a Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP).
How does HBP apply to me?
While owning your first home, you'll also receive income tax refunds. For spouses who work, these refunds can range between $10,000 and $21,000. The HBP allows each taxpayer to withdraw up to $20,000, tax-free, from their Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) to purchase a home.
And if I don`t have an RRSP?You can still take advantage of the HBP, as long as you are earning, or have earned in the past, an income entitling you to contribute to an RRSP.
By contributing the maximum possible amount to your RRSP, you'll receive generous income tax refunds,
And if I do not have sufficient funds to contribute to an RRSP?
It's easy to contribute up to $20,000 to your RRSP, because allowable unused contributions since 1991 can be fully used and deductible. Also, if you take out a 90-day loan from you financial institution, and pay it back immediately after the 90-day period using money withdraw from your RRSP, you will legally obtain your income tax deduction. Afterwards, you will have almost 18 years to reinvest the money in your RRSP, without interest.
