Reduction of Old Age Security Recovery Tax at Source
You may have to repay all or a part of your OAS pension (line 113) or net federal supplements (line 146) when you file your income tax return. If that is the case, a recovery tax will be deducted by Service Canada on your OAS benefits paid beginning July 2012.
If your net income exceeded the threshold (see line 235) in 2011, and your net income for 2012 will be substantially lower, you may request a waiver from CRA so that Service Canada will reduce the tax withheld at source. The request must be made in writing.
