Solidarity Tax Credit – Individuals
The solidarity tax credit is a refundable tax credit for low- and middle-income families.
Since it is based on your situation on December 31 of the previous year, the amount of your credit for the period from July 2021 to June 2022 will be based on your situation on December 31, 2020.
To be eligible for this credit, you must file your income tax return and meet all the applicable requirements. To receive all the amounts you could be entitled to for each component of the solidarity tax credit, you must claim the credit by filing Schedule D of your 2020 income tax return. If you are eligible for the credit but do not complete Schedule D, we will pay only the basic amount and the spousal amount, if applicable, of the QST component.
There are multiple components to this tax credit; to find out what they are, click Components of the Solidarity Tax Credit.
