What is the GST/HST credit?

by in Tax Advice Information and Updates
The GST/HST credit is a tax-free payment aimed at helping low and modest income families and individuals offset the GST/HST that they pay. 

Generally, Canadian Residents aged 19 or older are eligible to receive the GST/HST credit. Those who are under 19 years old may also be eligible if they have a spouse or if they are a parent and they reside with their child.  Payments are made quarterly to eligible recipients. 

Make sure you tick the GST/HST credit check box on the first page of your tax return to apply for this credit. 

If you are eligible but do not have taxable income, you should still file your tax return to claim this benefit.
