Hello Gaia,


The Ontario Trillium Benefit (OTB) includes the following credits.

* The Ontario sales tax credit;

* The Ontario energy and property tax credit;

* Credit for energy costs in Northern Ontario.

You are not claiming the "Ontario Sales Tax Credit". The CRA will determine from the information provided in your return whether you are eligible and will notify you.

Payments from these credits are combined to better match the expenses incurred by taxpayers. You must apply and be eligible for at least one of these credits to receive the OTB.

If you have a spouse and the latter usually lives with you, only one of you can apply for the OTB for your couple.

You can choose to wait until June 2024 to receive your OTP from 2024 in one payment instead of receiving it from July 2024 to June 2025. Please indicate this in the "Choice for delayed single OTB payment" section.

To apply for OTB using the program, please follow these steps:

1. On the "Left-side menu on the Interview tab" of your tax file, select the "Ontario tax credits" section.

2. On the page to the right, choose the "ON-BEN Application" group.

3. In this group, choose the option "ON-BEN - Application for the 2024 of the Ontario Trillium benefit (Ontario sales tax, energy costs and property taxes, costs of energy in northern ON.) and subv. to the pers. elderly prop. for property tax".

4. On the page that appears entitled "Ontario Trillium Benefit (OTB)", you must answer the questions on this page;

If you are requesting a credit, a section titled "Declaration of information about the principal residence" will appear with the words "Click here". Perform this operation, you return to the "Ontario tax credits" section, choose the "ON-BEN Declaration (s)" group, select one or the options that corresponds to your situation. Enter your information.

On the "Declaration for student in a designated residence" option, you must enter the name of the residence.

If you lived in a private, non-profit long-term care home or a public long-term care home, you must choose the "Declaration for amount paid for public or non-profit long-term care home" option. Please note that if the establishment has not detailed the cost of the room and board, you can claim up to 75% of the total amount as accommodation cost.

The program generates an estimate of the Ontario Trillium benefit for July 2024 to June 2025.

Hi Geo 123,


Thank you for your detailed help.

However, on step 4, when I answered 'yes', I got reminder in red to complete related declaration, see below.

After clicking 'Declaration section' I come to the choice of different declarations, but there is not no declaration for 'Application for the Ontario energy and property tax credit (OEPTC)'

Hi Geo123,


I understand.

I used all necessary ones, however, I could not find 'Application for the Ontario energy and property tax credit (OEPTC)'.

Is it necessary to complete this application separately?

Or, only listed above declarations can be used.


Thank you,
