Ontario Real Estate Association calls on government to address confusion about HST
TORONTO, Oct. 26, 2011 /CNW/ - An Ontario Real Estate Association (OREA) survey reveals that confusion about the Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) and buying a resale home has not decreased in the last year despite efforts by the provincial government and real estate industry to educate the public.
The survey conducted by Ipsos Reid shows that 58 per cent of Ontarians mistakenly believe the HST is applied to the purchase price of a resale home versus 56 per cent who believed the same in an identical OREA/Ipsos survey conducted last fall.
