The Canada Revenue Agency administers the Saskatchewan low‑income tax credit, which is a goods and services tax/harmonized sales tax (GST/HST) credit related program, on behalf of the Saskatchewan
Saskatchewan low‑income tax credit (SLITC)
This credit is a tax-free amount paid to help Saskatchewan residents with low and modest incomes.
For July 2016 to June 2017, this program provides $246 for an individual, $246 for a spouse or common–law partner (or for an eligible dependant), and $96 per child (maximum of two children), or an annual credit of up to $684 per family. The credit starts to be reduced when the adjusted family net income is more than $32,301. Families with adjusted family net income between $32,301 and $66,500 may get part of the credit.
The payments are combined with the quarterly payments of the federal GST credit. The Saskatchewan low–income tax credit program is fully funded by the Saskatchewan provincial government.
