Special Notes

  • Most tax credit reliefs in Canada are stated in "amount" figures. These are not to be subtracted directly from income tax but are instead first multiplied against the rate on the lowest tax bracket before doing so. In other words, these are basically acting like deductions in the more traditional sense of the word for tax purposes, but with a slight twist.

As far as terminology goes, deductions are not as standard and widely available in Canada when compared to the United States to the south. Instead, Canada takes a different approach and tends to structure things around tax credits.

It is important to note that most tax credits are non-refundable which means that if the total amount of tax credits ends up being higher than your income tax, you will not be given a refund of the difference. In such scenarios, your income tax would simply be zero.

Most tax credit reliefs are stated in "amount" figures. These are not to be subtracted directly from income tax but are instead first multiplied against the rate on the lowest tax bracket before doing so. In other words, these are basically acting like deductions in the more traditional sense of the word for tax purposes, but with a slight twist.

On the federal level, some include the employment amount and the personal amount. For 2022, the former stands at $1,287 while the latter ranges from $12,719 to $14,398 depending on your income.

Social Security in Canada

Social security in most of Canada consists of the Canada Pension Plan (CPP) and Employment Insurance (EI), with the exception of Quebec. Contributions to the CPP and EI come in at rates of 5.7% and 1.58%, respectively. Maximum limits regarding the income that is applicable for contributions are present for both.

Additionally, corresponding tax credits that help offset the burden of social security contributions, up to certain limits, also exist. These can be applied on both the federal and provincial level.

Resident status and income tax in Canada

Residents are subject to Canadian income tax on worldwide income while non-residents are subject to Canadian income tax only on Canada-sourced income. Individuals that are resident in Canada for only part of a year are taxed only on worldwide income during the period with which they were resident.

When determining whether or not an individual is considered to be a resident, many factors are examined. Some factors include having a fixed abode in Canada, maintaining an abode in Canada, having a spouse and dependents living in Canada, social and business ties, membership in organizations, driver licenses, vehicle registrations, medical insurance, etc. All these and more are considered when determining residence.

In the unlikely scenario where none of the factors exist, individuals can still be considered residents if they stay 183 days or more in a calendar year.
