I was out of work for the time of 3 months (October, November& December) in year 2015, and January, 2016 as to my family doctor’s examination to my “Shingles& Post Herpetic Neuralgia.” I am back to work with a severe painful condition because my apartment rent is higher than my monthly pension. Am I allowed for some disability tax deduction.

Your early reply is kindly appreciated

Mamdouh,

We are sorry, but we are not providing any income tax consultation.

Hi

I am moving to Ontario from the UK next year

If I plug in the amount I will get paid in the calculator above, is the bottom number what I will actually get over the year or are there other taxes to pay in Canada. I am trying to work out how much I will earn roughly after tax each month

you will 2% employment insurance and 5 % for canada pension plan

Hi

Thank you for responding.

If I am only spending a year in Canada (July 2017-July 2018) then moving back to the UK presumably I wont need to pay pension contributions? but just the 2% employment contributions?

Many thanks

Is it possible to pull the total tax value into a spreadsheet using an Excel formula? For example from Excel use a URL to the web calculator that includes the taxable income and have the total income tax payable returned to a cell in the spreadsheet?

Hi Bruce,

No, it is not possible at the moment.

Hi if I use the above calculator…Will there be any tax refund from the goverment at the end of the year?Thanks…Dan

This calculator shows only estimation of payable tax and not tax refunds. Calculation of tax refund requires much more data to be provided.

Second fed tax bracket ought to be 20.5% and not 22% as posted above.

Thank you Rex. It is corrected.

regular income is only 10500. next year will have pension of 215000. given to me. what is the tax that I will have to pay.

(5608-4418)*20% = 238 for surtax, not the 225 you have stated at the top. What is the reason for this discrepancy?

Hi

I will leave Canada in July 2017.

I have worked for 6 months.

My total income is less than 45000 cad then I will get full refund if I file the return in 2018?

Hi Dharmesh,

You should expect to get it in late May/June, 2018
