Yukon: Personal Income Tax Brackets, Tax Rates, and Credits

If you find yourself wishing there were more hours in day, you should check out Yukon. Also known as the “land of the midnight sun”, Yukon boasts almost continuous sun for three months a year.

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

Yukon’s Progressive Tax Rate Structure

As with most provinces, Yukon uses a progressive tax structure and has five tax brackets. The brackets increase each year, based on inflation. Visit the Yukon Government’s Personal Income Tax page for more information.
