Ontario provides eligible individuals and families with a number of Ontario tax credits and benefits through the personal income tax system.
Ontarians must file a tax return to ensure they receive credits and benefits that may be available to them. Individuals and families may be eligible regardless of whether they have received social assistance or did not earn any income in 2014. Some of the Ontario tax credits and benefits available include:
Ontario’s tax system supports the province’s programs and investments in education, transportation, health care, infrastructure and skills. It is also a way the government delivers vital financial support to thousands of households each year.
Investing in people through tax credits and benefits is part of the government's economic plan for Ontario. The four-part plan is building Ontario up by investing in people's talents and skills, building new public infrastructure like roads and transit, creating a dynamic, supportive environment where business thrives and building a secure savings plan so everyone can afford to retire.
“The Ontario government provides a variety of tax credits to many people of our province. These credits help support fairness and prosperity for the benefit of Ontarians.”
