Available Programs: Climate Action Incentive | Feb 10, 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 Climate Action Incentive
Canadians who live in Ontario can claim the climate action incentive with their income tax return. The amount you receive depends on your province of residence and your personal living situation, and it probably won’t cover all the costs of the carbon tax. You may also qualify for a 10% supplement if you are a resident of a small or rural community. (The basic amounts for 2020 are $300 for Ontario.)
