    First time home buyers may be eligible for a refund of all or part of the Land Transfer Tax payable on their purchase. This refund applies to all homes, whether newly constructed or resale. The maximum amount of the refund is $2,000.00. The refund can be claimed at time of registration or directly from the Ministry of Revenue. Any applications to the Ministry for the refund must be made within 18 months of the date of registration of your transfer. To claim a refund you must be at least 18 years of age, must occupy the home you purchased as your principal residence within 9 months of the date of transfer and you cannot have owned a home, or an interest in a home, at anytime, anywhere in the world. Also, your spouse cannot have owned a home, or an interest in a home, at anytime, anywhere in the world while being our spouse.
