The symbol of Equitable Life of Canada (CNW Group/Equitable Life of Canada) has been showcased.

The FHSA is a plan that is legitimized, and it gives individuals who are buying their first homes the chance to save $40,000 without needing to pay taxes. This is similar to an RRSP in that the contributions are deductible regarding taxes. Furthermore, when withdrawing money, including the investment profit, to buy a first home, there will be no tax implications, similar to a TFSA.

Cam Crosbie, the Executive VP of Savings and Retirement, recognizes that purchasing a first home is a difficult task for many Canadians. He expresses his enthusiasm and pride in introducing the Equitable Life FHSA, which they believe is a significant step in making the dream of owning a house achievable. As a company that strives to assist people in achieving their financial aspirations, they are excited to offer this opportunity to their clients.

The Equitable Life FHSA is an official program that permits future home purchasers who are buying their first house to save tax-free for their initial residential property.

You can find it on both Pivotal SelectTM Investment Class (with a rating of 75 out of 75) and Pivotal Select Estate Class (with a rating of 75 out of 100).

You can contribute up to $8,000 annually to your account, and the most you can contribute throughout your lifetime is $40,000.

Donations can receive a tax deduction just like a Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP).

Withdrawals that meet the requirements do not have tax implications, just like a Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA).

If you have funds in your FHSA that you haven't used, you can move them to a RRSP or Registered Retirement Income Fund and not pay taxes on them until later.

Individuals who decide to open a First Home Saver Account (FHSA) during the time frame of September 11 to December 31, 2023, will now have the opportunity to gain a grand prize of $8,000 towards their FHSA contribution for the year 2024. For additional information regarding the contest, please review the complete contest details.

If you are interested in applying for a FHSA and meet the qualifications, it is recommended that you get in touch with your advisor.
