Income Tax


The Government of Canada has information online for you to learn about paying income tax (en Français). This is money that you will need to pay if you are a resident of Canada.

Usually this money is subtracted from your pay cheque.

The government uses these taxes in order to provide different services, such as road work, health care and schooling.

Each year you have to fill out an Income Tax and Benefit Return. This will allow the government to see how much money you made and the taxes that you paid.

You may get money back if you paid too much, or you may have to pay more if you did not pay enough.
