Changes to the Tax Credit for Experienced Workers
To further encourage experienced workers to remain in the labour market, the age of eligibility for the tax credit will be lowered, as of the 2018 taxation year, to 61 years of age. For workers who are 61 years old, the maximum amount of eligible work income on which the tax credit will be calculated is $3,000.
Moreover, tax legislation will be amended so that the maximum amount of eligible work income on which the tax credit will be calculated for experienced workers aged 62 and over will be increased by $1,000 as of the 2018 taxation year.
The table below shows how the tax credit for experienced workers will be adjusted as of the 2018 taxation year.
|Age of experienced worker||Maximum eligible work income|
|65 and over||$11,000|
