Canada - Federal 2017 and 2018 Tax Brackets and Marginal Tax Rates

Income Tax Act s. 117, 117.1

The Federal tax brackets and personal amount are increased for 2018 by an indexation factor of 1.015.  The indexation factors, tax brackets and tax rates have been been confirmed to Canada Revenue Agency information.

The 2018 marginal tax rates for non-eligible dividends reflect the rates that are in effect due to the change in the gross-up rate for 2018, as announced in the October 24, 2017 Fall Economic Statement.

In order to determine the total tax rate paid in your province, see the combined marginal tax rates for your province.  If you are not a resident of Canada, see Who Pays Tax in Canada and on What Income?
