This calculator is intended to be used for planning purposes. It does not include every available tax credit. We strive for accuracy, but cannot guarantee it. Calculations are based on rates known as of January 19, 2014. Ontario 2014 dividend tax credit rates and surtax calculation are based on proposals for which draft legislation is not yet available. BC MSP rates for 2015 use 2014 rates, as 2015 rates have not yet been announced.
