Medical Expenses
Everyone can receive a 15.5% tax credit for eligible medical
expenses, which exceed the lesser of 3% of your net income
or $1,903. There are a variety of eligible medical expenses that
can be claimed, please review the CRA booklet for eligible
expenses or see your accountant for further information.

 

Charitable Donations
Regardless of which spouse or dependent made a charitable
donation, one spouse can and usually should claim them all. This
can make a difference because the federal tax credit is 15.5%
on the first $200 and 29% on everything over that. If both
spouses made donations of $200 and each claimed their own
you would only get 15.5% federal credit on the entire amount.
If one claimed both donations, $200 would be at 15.5%
and $200 would be at 29%.

 

Income Splitting
As a general rule, a couple will pay less tax if their income is split evenly. This is rarely the case so you may want to look for ways to shift income from the higher earning spouse to the lower. Investment income is usually a good place to start. If the higher earning spouse pays all the bills out of their bank account, and the lower spouse uses their income to invest in GICs, all of the investment income can be claimed by lower income spouse. Too often couples have one bank account and often one taxpayer will claim all the income earned. See your accountant for further information on income splitting strategies.
