HST is Applicable on the Real Estate Commission

13% ON THE REAL ESTATE COMMISSION WILL HAVE AN IMPACT ON THE SELLING PRICE

If you are selling your home and using a real estate agent, you will be aware that you will have to pay commission on the sale price. Many sellers, however, are not aware that they also have to pay HST (13%) on the amount of the commission.

Be sure to budget for the HST on the real estate commission when you are selling your home.
