Claiming the Tax Shield
The tax shield is a refundable tax credit. To claim it, you must check box 99 of Schedule C or box 5 of Schedule P when you file your income tax return. We will calculate the amount you are entitled to. You can also calculate it yourself by completing form TP-1029.BF-V, Tax Shield.
For more information, see the instructions for line 460 in the Guide to the Income Tax Return (TP-1.G-V)
If you complete form TP-1029.BF-V, do not enclose it with your income tax return. Do, however, keep it for your files.
