The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) made a few major updates for tax year 2023 so we’re making sure you get your best possible outcome when filing your taxes!
Tax Brackets and Contribution Amount Limits
One of the most important changes this tax season is that tax brackets and many contribution amounts and limits have increased to account for rising living costs and inflation. The adjustment upwards means that Canadians on the edge of a tax bracket might be shifted into a lower bracket this year and pay less taxes. TurboTax has been updated to make these calculations accordingly to ensure your tax return is accurate.
Increased Basic Personal Amount to $15,000
The Basic Personal Amount, a non-refundable tax credit, fully exempts individuals with taxable income below this amount from federal income tax and offers a partial reduction for those with higher incomes. This means you pay less tax on the same income compared to previous years!
COVID-19 Work-from-home Expenses
While you might still be able to take mid-morning showers if you work from home, you won’t be able to claim the $500 COVID work-from-home expense in your 2023 tax return. The Canada Worker Lockdown Benefit that offered temporary income support during the pandemic also ended and cannot be claimed for your 2023 taxes.
