Canada Tax: Federal and provincial tax, tax brackets and due dates

Canada Tax

In Canada, taxpayers pay income tax to the federal government and to the government of the province/territory where they reside. In all provinces/territories except Québec, the federal government collects the provincial/territorial tax and gives it back to them in the form of various programs. Québec collects and manages its own income tax. Tax credits, rebates and various amounts that individuals may be entitled to are used to reduce the income tax they have to pay.
