Prince Edward Island Personal Income Tax Brackets, Tax Rates, & Credits

Prince Edward Island is Canada’s smallest province, in both population and land size. Despite its small size, visitors flock from all over to enjoy its beautiful rolling hills, beaches, and charming island culture.

Prince Edward Island has a tax system similar to other Canadian provinces. Many of the provincial taxes and credits for residents of Prince Edward Island compliment similar credits at the federal level, but there are some unique credits for residents of Prince Edward Island.

PEI’s Progressive Tax Rate Structure

As with most provinces, Prince Edward Island uses a progressive tax structure with only three tax brackets. The brackets may increase each year, based on inflation. Visit the CRA’s Prince Edward Island page for this year’s tax bracket rates.
