Tax Guide 2012

February 18, 2013

I’m pleased to deliver this Tax Guide 2012 to help ensure you and your family won’t miss out on important savings.  The initiatives included on the pages of this Guide are part of
our Government’s broader plan to reduce your tax burden, a plan that has also included:

  • cutting the GST to 5 per cent
  • reducing income taxes and keeping them low
  • introducing the landmark Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA) to help Canadians save
  • delivering tax cuts for families, workers, seniors and job creators

In fact, our initiatives have helped a typical Canadian family save more than $3,100 on average per year.  Plus, seniors and pensioners will receive around $2.5 billion in targeted tax relief for the 2012-2013 fiscal year.
