Personal Income Tax
Personal tax brackets, rates and credits
New Brunswick currently has four personal income tax brackets. The tax rates for these will be reduced each year beginning in 2009. The threshold levels of each bracket will be increased each year, as will the basic personal amount and the spousal amount. In 2012, the four-bracket structure will be replaced with two brackets. The 2009 rate changes are now reflected in the tables of marginal tax rates for New Brunswick.
The Low-Income Tax Reduction (LITR) is currently phased out at a rate of 5% of income over the base amount. This phase-out rate is reduced to 4% for 2009, and 3% thereafter.
The following will be the thresholds for each bracket:
