2018 & 2019 Tax Numbers That Matter to You
If you’re a senior, there’s some essential numbers to keep in mind as we prepare for the end of year and coming tax season.
- Age amount: if you’re older than 65, you can claim $7,333 (this will increase by $161 to $7,494 in 2019) as a non-refundable tax credit.
- Pension amount: there’s no change from 2018, but you can still claim $2,000 as a non-refundable tax credit if you have pension income or RRIF/LIF income.
- OAS claw back line: you may have to repay some of your Old Age Security income if your income exceeds $75,910 for 2018. In 2019, this recovery threshold will increase to $77,580.
