New services and tax credits announced by the Canadian Revenue Agency.
Some of the new credits available include the Canada Child Benefit, which is a tax-free monthly payment made to eligible families that replaces the Canada Child Tax Benefit, and the eligible Educator School Supply Tax Credit, which allows eligible educators to possibly claim a 15% refundable tax credit for teaching supplies that are bought throughout the year.
CRA Resource Officer Rick Gill has details on some new services that Canadians can take advantage of, including the MyBenefits CRA mobile app.
"You can use this new web-based mobile app to securely view your next benefit payment dates and the amounts, the status of your child-tax benefit application, as well as update your marital status and change information about children in your care."
