2018 RRSP Contribution Deadline is March 1!

The 2018 RRSP contribution deadline is rapidly approaching and the last day to make contributions is March 1, 2019. Why should you contribute to an RRSP? Contributing to an RRSP before March 1 lowers your 2018 taxable income and result in less income tax owing when you file your 2018 tax return. If you normally get a refund, a RRSP contribution can increase the size of your refund and if you generally owe tax, a contribution can help lower the amount owing.

Family Tax Cut – Don’t Waste Credits

The Family Tax Cut can change the way we think about which spouse should make the RRSP contribution. In a family situation where the non-refundable credits claimed by the higher-income spouse exceed the “adjusted taxable income” after splitting, the extra credits can be wasted.

The New $2,000 Family Tax Cut

This new federal non-refundable credit will provide up to a maximum of $2,000 in tax relief to benefit one-earner or two-earner couples where one spouse’s income is taxed at a higher rate.
