Important: As of January 1, 2014 the Nova Scotia Graduate Retention Rebate was eliminated. It cannot be claimed in H&R Block’s online tax software.
The Nova Scotia Graduate Retention Rebate was a non-refundable tax credit, up until January 1st 2014 when it was eliminated. The Nova Scotia government had invested in student assistance programs such as the Nova Scotia bursary which provided each post-secondary student $1,300 towards their tuition fees. Any amounts that were not used prior to 2014 could not be carried forward when the program was eliminated.
