Program related to the goods and services tax/harmonized sales tax (GST/HST) credit:


New Brunswick child tax benefit (NBCTB)

The NBCTB is a tax-free amount paid monthly to qualifying families with children under 18 years of age. The New Brunswick working income supplement (NBWIS) is an additional benefit paid to qualifying families with earned income who have children under 18 years of age. Benefits are combined with the CCB into a single monthly payment.

You may be entitled to a basic benefit of $20.83 per month for each child. The amount of the basic benefit is reduced if your adjusted family net income is more than $20,000.

The NBWIS is an additional benefit of up to $20.83 per month for each family. It is phased in once family earned income is more than $3,750. The maximum benefit is reached when family earned income is $10,000.

If your adjusted family net income is between $20,921 and $25,921, you may get part of the supplement.

These amounts are combined with the CCB into a single monthly payment.

Your NBCTB payment may include a New Brunswick school supplement (NBSS) amount. The NBSS is paid once a year in July to help low income families with the cost of back to school supplies for their children. For the July 2016 NBSS payment, if your adjusted family net income for 2015 is $20,000 or less, you will get $100 for each of your children born between January 1, 1999 and December 31, 2011.

This program is fully funded by the Province of New Brunswick.
