There are many ways families can save at tax time. The activities you signed your kids up for may save you money on your taxes - save those receipts! If your child was enrolled in a sports or arts program you may be eligible for the Children’s fitness tax credit or the Children’s arts amount. If you support a dependant with a physical or mental impairment, you may be able to claim an additional amount (up to $2,093 in 2015) related to the family caregiver amount when calculating certain non-refundable tax credits related.
