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 2020 to June 2021 will be based on your situation on December 31, 2019.
To be eligible for this credit, you must file your income tax return and meet all the applicable requirements. To receive the basic amount and the spouse's portion of the QST component of the credit, you no longer have to complete Schedule D. However, to ensure that you receive the full amount you are entitled to for all components of the solidarity tax credit, you must claim the credit by filing Schedule D of your income tax return.
There are multiple components to this tax credit; to find out what they are, click Components of the Solidarity Tax Credit.
