I’ve written about this tax credit before, but it’s definitely worth talking about again.  The Nova Scotia Graduate Retention Rebate is worth from $7,500 to $15,000 in actual tax savings, over a 6 year span.

If you are a recent college or university graduate, and you are living in Nova Scotia, be sure to check this one out.

    So there’s nothing for people who graduated earlier and want to stay in the province?

    For the years 2006, 2007, and 2008 graduates in Nova Scotia were able to claim the old Graduate Tax Credit. Info on that is available here:

    If you were eligible to claim this, but missed doing so, you may be able to adjust your appropriate tax return by writing to the Canada Revenue Agency. http://www.cra.gc.ca

    The old Graduate Tax Credit was replaced by the much more lucrative Graduate Retention Rebate, for the 2009 and following tax years.
