2022/2023 New Personal Tax Measures

The Federal government has rolled out some new tax benefits for Canadians!

I am going to keep this short and have highlighted the main points here. Click through to read more and as always, contact us should have any questions.

A quick note: Refundable vs. Non-refundable tax credit. The latter means that the credit can only be applied against your taxes otherwise payable. A Refundable credit means that if you have any left over after paying your tax bill, that you will get a refund of cash back.

If these apply to you, DO let us know when we are preparing your personal tax filing!
