  2. Hi,

    We are a retired couple living in Quebec. Usually my wife doesn’t have income and my income is around $50,000.
    This year (2016) we just sell an income property which is owned by both of us with capital gain of $250,000.
    Could you please let me know what is my total (federal+Quebec) income tax I have to pay for 2016.


  3. Hi, I live in Quebec and will receive $16,000 in alimony (no taxes withheld) and $17,000 in income from my employment. I’ve been putting $400 away each month to cover taxes due next spring, is that enough?
    Thank you.

  4. Hello,
    I live in Quebec and have 3 children (all in school and living at home, one is 19, 2 are teens)
    If I earn 55,000 per year how much tax will I pay.

  5. Hi,
    I am living alone in Quebec, am 66 years old, retired with 39M total annual income. I am thinking about converting my RRSP to RIF starting in 2018. It will boost my income to 56M. I get extra exemptions for age, retirement and living alone of $5151 Provincial and $6590 Federal. They save me approx. $1000 on each return. On top of paying the income tax on the increased income will I loose these exemptions?
