Tax Development Jun 21, 2010

The Canada Revenue has issued two new info sheets which provide information on how GST/HST will apply for individuals who build or substantially renovate, or hire someone else to build or substantially renovate their own home, or who buy a new mobile or floating home.  The bulletins also explain the new housing rebates that may be available to purchasers or owners of such homes located in Ontario or British Columbia.
