Construction Costs Worksheet: First-time Home Buyers’ Rebate
If you’re applying for the First-time Home Buyers’ Rebate, you need to submit the Construction Costs Worksheet if you owned the land before construction began.
Use the Construction Costs Worksheet if you owned the land before construction began. You need to submit the worksheet as part of the First-time Home Buyers’ Rebate application process.
The worksheet asks you to list all qualifying construction costs from building your new home.
Qualifying construction costs can include:
- services and construction materials purchased for the construction of a new home on which tax has been paid
- building a driveway
- drilling a well
- installing a septic system
If you’re putting a manufactured (mobile) home on land you own, there may be additional costs not included in the purchase price. Any of these costs might also qualify for the rebate if you paid tax on them.
You don’t have to include the receipts or invoices for the qualifying constructions costs, but you do need to keep them for a period of 6 years in case your rebate is audited. All receipts and invoices need to be in your name or a co-owner's name. Quotes, credit card receipts, debit receipts and statements are not acceptable.
