Changes in Ontario Credits

The Ontario children’s activity tax credit (line 6309) and the Ontario healthy homes renovation tax credit (line 6311) have been eliminated. In addition, taxpayers who reside in Ontario at the end of the current taxation year, who were at least 65 years old on the last day of the preceding taxation year and who paid an amount for their use of public transit services are entitled to a new refundable tax credit, i.e. the Ontario seniors’ public transit tax credit (line 6305). For 2017, the maximum credit that can be claimed is $225, and only public transit services used from July 1, 2017, to December 31, 2017 give rise to the credit. For the following years, the maximum credit that can be claimed will be $450, and public transit services used throughout the year will give rise to this credit
