Save on your income taxes and save for a down payment at the same time!
Did you know? If you are a first time buyer, you are able to withdraw up to $25,000 from your RSP account, tax free. The funds can be used for the down payment on your new home. The program stipulates that you have 15 years to re-pay the money back into your RSP account. If you don't have an RSP, or have not made a contribution for 2015 tax year, this might be the time to persue this down payment strategy! You have until February 29th to contribute to an RSP for a tax deduction for 2015. Please get in touch with me at 780-722-6287 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to discuss this program in more detail!
