How to Calculate New Brunswick Net Income
As one of the four founding provinces of Canada, New Brunswick is a place that embodies the Canadian spirit of hard work and determination. Amidst scenic landscapes, a rich history, and a strong sense of community, the province has long been a hub for industries such as forestry, mining, and technology.
As with any prosperous society, the government must collect taxes to ensure the continued growth and success of its citizens. What kind of taxes will your income be subject to? Let's dive on in and take a look at how your net income is calculated.
The first tax you'll see is provincial income tax.
The main aspect of the income tax system here is that it is progressive. This means that not all of your income is taxed at the same rate. Instead, your income is divided into several segments or brackets, each with its own tax rate. The more income you earn, the higher the tax rate you pay on the excess amount. This way, the tax system aims to be fair and equitable for all taxpayers.
New Brunswick has four tax brackets, each with its own tax rate. The lowest tax bracket sees a tax rate of 9.4%, while the highest tax bracket sees a tax rate of 19.5%.
New Brunswick Income Tax Brackets
For 2023 tax year
|Taxable Income (CAD)||Tax Rate|
|From 47,715 to 95,431||14%|
|From 95,431 to 176,756||16%|
|From 176,756 onwards||19.5%|
In addition to tax brackets, New Brunswick also offers tax credits as a way to reduce the amount of tax you owe. It's 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 this case, your income tax would simply be zero.
When it comes to tax credits, most are stated in "amount" figures, which are not to be subtracted directly from income tax. Instead, these amounts are first multiplied against the rate on the lowest tax bracket before being applied. Essentially, this is similar to traditional tax deductions, but with a slight adjustment.
For 2023, the non-refundable basic personal amount in New Brunswick is $12,458. This tax credit is available to all taxpayers that live and work here.
For low-income earners, New Brunswick also offers a low-income tax reduction in the form of a tax credit. This credit is designed to help those who earn less than a certain amount each year, ensuring that they pay a smaller share of their income in taxes.
As a resident of New Brunswick, it's important to keep in mind that the federal government also collects income tax from its citizens. This federal income tax works in a similar way to the provincial income tax and is also based on a progressive tax system. We'll provide more information on this topic in a dedicated section below, so you can better understand how this tax works and how it impacts your net income.
Your income will also be subject to taxes for social security.
In New Brunswick, the social security system, as in most of Canada, includes the Canada Pension Plan (CPP) and Employment Insurance (EI). When it comes to contributions, both the CPP and EI are set at rates of 5.95% and 1.63%, respectively, and maximum limits on applicable income apply to both.
The impact of these can be reduced via tax credits, up to certain limits. These tax credits happen to be available at both the provincial and federal levels.
