GST tax credit

In order to receive your GST refund, you must apply for the credit each year when filing your income tax forms (even if no income is reported).  If you are
elligible, you can apply for it any time of the year.

You are eligible for the GST/HST credit if you are 19 years of age or older, you are a resident in Canada for income tax purposes, have (or previously had) a spouse or a common-law partner or be (or previously was) a parent and live (or previously lived) with their child.

Based on your declaration,  the Canada Revenue Agency will use different criteria to calculate your GST/HST Credit such as:

  • Line 236 of your Canadian Income Tax and Benefit Return
  • The net income of your spouse or common-law partner, in particular any amount reported for the Universal Child Care Benefit (line 117) and for the Registered Disability Savings;
  • The number of dependent children registered for the Canada Child Tax Benefit or the GST Credit;
  • Other criteria may apply.

New residents of Canada can also apply for the GST tax credit any time during the year they become Canadian residents by completing this GST application form

You must advise the Canada Revenue Agency of any changes in regards to the number of dependent children or your marital status. The amount of your credit will then be adjusted. Note that credits can be adjusted during the year.

In case you don't receive your GST/HST credit within ten (10) business days of the date of issuance, you should call the Canada Revenu Agency.
