Basic personal amount


Recommended Posts

I am a new Permanent resident in Canada, I came to Canada on Feb 15 2020. My income for 2020 is less than 150,473 so am I eligible for the full 13,229 tax credit given that I was not a resident till Feb14. Also, are there any other considerations that can reduce this credit other than the income?

UFile will calculate the right amount if you input the right date for 'entry to Canada'.  This link https://www.canada.ca/en/revenue-agency/services/tax/international-non-residents/individuals-leaving-entering-canada-non-residents/newcomers-canada-immigrants.html is a good guide for newcomers (first year in Canada).

Added: You will receive full credit for non-refundable tax credits like personal deduction if you meet the 90% rule. See https://www.taxcycle.com/documentation/t1-personal-tax/couples-families-and-dependants/immigrants-emigrants-and-non-residents/

I think the software should determine eligibility.
