2020 Tax Comparisons Employment Income

Combined Federal/Provincial Income Taxes Payable (Refundable) on Employment Income by Province/Territory

Taxes are net of Canada Workers Benefit (CWB, formerly WITB), and any low income tax reductions.  The 2020 CWB is based on 2019 CWB indexed for inflation.

CPP/QPP contributions and EI premiums are included in taxes.

Negative amounts are refundable taxes paid to the taxpayer.

The Climate Action Incentive (CAI) is not included.

QC total tax is net of the refundable federal tax abatement.

QC provincial tax includes progressive health contribution and prescription drug premiums (for both spouses in married person case).

ON provincial tax includes Ontario Health Premium.

Taxes reflect 2020 income tax rates as known at April 16, 2020.

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.

2020 Taxes for Single Income Family, 2 Children Over 6 and Under 17 Years of Age

At the $10,000 taxable income level, refund of $1,321 reflects the federal refundable CWB of $1,820, less CPP contributions of $341.25, and less EI premiums of $158.  Refundable amounts in excess of $1,321 reflect provincial refundable amounts (BC, MB, NT, NU, QC).  NU has a much lower CWB at $10,000, and the AB CWB is slightly lower than others.  QC has lower CWB but this is more than offset by the QC tax credit respecting the work premium.
