Paying for heating bills, sales and property taxes can add up quickly – especially for those with modest incomes. That’s why it’s important for everyone to file a tax return each year to get Ontario tax credits and benefits to help with these everyday costs.
The Ontario Trillium Benefit provides people with sales tax and property tax relief and helps people living in the North with their higher energy costs. To receive the benefit in a timely manner, you need to file your tax return by April 30th each year, even if you don’t have any income to report.
Investing in people through tax credits and benefits is part of the government’s economic plan for Ontario. The four-part plan is building Ontario up by investing in people’s talents and skills, building new public infrastructure like roads and transit, creating a dynamic, supportive environment where business thrives and building a secure savings plan so everyone can afford to retire.
