Seniors Aged 65 to Remain Eligible for the Age Amount
Québec's Minister of Finance has announced that the age amount will remain accessible to seniors aged 65 for the 2016 taxation year.
Further to this announcement, developers will make the necessary changes to their income tax return software. In the meantime, you can still file your return.
If you are filing a paper return, use January 1, 1952, as the cut-off date for eligibility on lines 22 and 23 of Schedule B.
If you have already filed your income tax return, you do not need to send us a new one.
We will correct income tax returns for taxpayers who are entitled to the age amount and adjust their refunds and balances owing as necessary.
