2011 TD1 Personal Tax Credits Return Form now available from CRA

[Side note: Wow, Philly cheesecake video just popped up on my screen from the top banner!]

If you will make over $10,527 in 2011 and you qualify for the:
  • child amount,
  • age amount,
  • pension income amount,
  • tuition/education/textbook amounts,
  • disability amount,
  • spouse or common-law partner amount,
  • amount for an eligible dependant,
  • caregiver amount,
  • amount for infirm dependants age 18 or older,
  • amounts transferred from your spouse or common-law partner,
  • or amounts transferred from a dependant,
you'll want to fill this form out so that you can keep more of your income instead of waiting till 2012 for a refund.

Why? Every employer I have ever had has always changed their withholding in accordance with the new basic personal exemption amount every year, and they have always assumed that whatever other amounts were on your TD1 that you have already given them will remain the same.


Unless something in your personal circumstances has changed and you now qualify for additional / no longer qualify for specific credits, there isn't really any reason to fill out a new one every year.

One other thing you should know for future reference. If it is on the subject of taxes, listen to ghostryder. He knows his stuff.

The post was not meant for people that have a stable job, the same deductions year after year, and know that they don't need a new form every year. It's meant for those that *do* have changes (such as tuition/education, and amounts transferred from a spouse/dependant) and those that don't know about this form and could make use of it (there are a lot of posts each year about this).
