I purchased a new home build Oct 2019 and put a deposit on the home. The possession date won't be till Feb 2021 since the home has not been built yet. In what year would I apply the first time home buyer tax credit?
Technically, to be eligible to apply for the first-time home buyers amount, you would need to be living in the home within a year of purchase. But I would recommend calling the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), and see if they will let you take the credit, since your home won’t be ready until more than a year has passed.
If you are in Canada or the United States, you can call the CRA at 1-800-959-8281. If you are elsewhere you can call 613-940-8495. This page has more ways to contact the CRA: https://www.canada.ca/en/revenue-agency/corporate/contact-information/telephone-numbers.html
