MARKHAM – York Region MPPs Michael Chan, Dr. Helena Jaczek, Reza Moridi, Steven Del Duca and Chris Ballard are reminding people to file their taxes by April 30 so they can get applicable tax credits and benefits on time.
People, including those who didn’t make any income last year, must file an income tax return to claim the various tax credits and benefits they may be eligible for, including:
Ontario also offers a number of tax credits for businesses, including the Co-operative Education Tax Credit that helps companies hire co-op students and the Ontario Research and Development Tax Credit.
People are encouraged to visit Ontario.ca/taxcredits to learn more about tax credits and benefits and to try Ontario’s tax credit calculator, which helps people determine how much money they could get by filing a tax return this year.
Ontario’s plan to create fairness and opportunity during this period of rapid economic change includes a higher minimum wage and better working conditions, free tuition for hundreds of thousands of students, easier access to affordable child care, and free prescription drugs for everyone under 25 through the biggest expansion of medicare in a generation.
“I encourage everyone to take advantage of the tax credits and benefits you may be eligible for by filing your taxes before the deadline. Use Ontario's tax credit calculator to find out more at Ontario.ca/taxcredits.”
