Goods and services tax/Harmonized sales tax (GST/HST) credit
New for the 2014 T1 return
You no longer have to apply for the goods and services tax/harmonized sales tax (GST/HST) credit and related provincial programs. When you file your 2014 return, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) will determine your eligibility and will advise those who are eligible to receive the credit.
If you have a spouse or common-law partner, only one of you can receive the credit. The credit will be paid to the person whose return is assessed first. The amount will be the same, regardless of who (in the couple) receives it. For more information see Budget 2014
The GST/HST credit is a tax-free quarterly payment that helps individuals and families with low or modest incomes offset all or part of the GST or HST that they pay.
