Available Programs: Goods and Services Tax (GST) Credit | Feb 8, 2021
The previous Conservative government succeeded in reducing the tax burden on Canadians to the lowest point in half a century. We did this by removing one million Canadians from tax rolls, increasing the amount Canadians could earn tax free, and cutting the lowest personal income tax rate to 15%.
Here is one that you can still claim: The Goods and Services Tax (GST) Credit
Four times a year, this tax-free payment helps individuals and families with modest incomes offset all or part of the GST they pay.
If you have a spouse or common-law partner, just one of you can receive this credit. When you file your 2020 tax return, CRA will determine your eligibility and will advise those who are eligible to receive the credit.
