What do you get when you cross a TFSA with an RRSP and use it to save for your first home?
The First Home Savings Account – A unique new investment account that we are excited to share with you. This is the multitool of savings vessels and offers the non-taxable withdraw of a TFSA with the Tax deduction of an RRSP. You can contribute up to $8,000 a year with a lifetime maximum of $40,000. This plan is designed to be used as a down payment on your first home. If for some reason you decide against buying a home with it, it rolls into a RRSP or RRIF. Ben talks about this product on the podcast today, where he gets into the nitty-gritty details that you should know.
