Is there a tax credit if you buy a home?

Rounding it up

  • There are a number of tax credits available to both new and existing homebuyers.

  • First-time homebuyers have a leg up with tax credits and the Home Buyers Plan — both of which make the purchase of a new home easier.

  • There are plenty of tax credits available to those buying second and third homes too, especially if you work from home or make green improvements.
