PSA: Check your CRA account for one-time GST credit (COVID-19 related)

Check your CRA account and you might be eligible receive a one-time credit by early April.

News link here.
Included in the list of benefits, credits and support payments related to COVID-19 is a one-time special payment of the Goods and Services Tax credit.

Individuals will receive amounts close to $400, while couples will get nearly $600. The credit will be made available to low and modest-income Canadians.

You do not have to apply for this credit. If you qualify, you will receive it automatically.
Mods, sorry to have put this in the Hot Deals thread but just wanted to spread the good news faster. Feel free to move it. Thanks! :cool:

You are not entitled to the GST/HST credit based on your net income and family situation.

Wasn’t eligible. If this indeed an COVID-19 related payment (not a regular GST rebate) I would consider this another FU to the middle class.

I'm guessing this is a no-go for others too, due to disqualification.

Frankly, my focus is on what's in my signature.

Household income?

That's $50,000 per person. You could only afford a 1 bedroom condo in Toronto with that much household income.

Do I care?
$290, for a single individual with 2018 net income below $9,413;
$443, for a single individual with 2018 net income exceeding $24,712. For single individuals with income between $9,413 to $24,712, the one-time GST credit is increased from $290 by 1 cent on each dollar of 2018 income earned;
$580, for a couple (including cohabitating common-law partner); and
Extra $153 for each child under the age of 19 and residing with the individual.

GST credit begins phasing out at 5 cents for every dollar of family income earned in 2018 over $37,789

So $37789 is highest point

Since most RFD'ers make over $100K, most won't be eligible

Same.

But we are net savers so proportionally pay out less GST anyways.
