bullet CPP/QPP contributions and EI premiums are included in taxes.
bullet Negative amounts are refundable taxes paid to the taxpayer.
bulletThe Climate Action Incentive (CAI) is not included.
bullet QC total tax is net of the refundable federal tax abatement.
bullet QC provincial tax includes progressive health contribution and prescription drug premiums (for both spouses in married person case).
bullet ON provincial tax includes Ontario Health Premium.

You can check the results for any amount of employment income by using our detailed Canadian Tax and RRSP Savings Calculator or our Quebec Tax and RRSP Savings Calculator.
