Will I receive GST

You will be eligible to receive GST credit if you meet the minimal requirements. To receive GST, you need to be considered a Canadian resident for income tax purposes the month before and at the beginning of the month in which the Canada Revenue Agency makes a payment. You also need to be at least 19-year-old, have (or had) a spouse or common-law partner, be a parent and live with your child.


You can visit GST/HST credit – Overview, to see how much GST you can expect to receive and what are the payment dates.


If you are a new resident, you should have filled out and sent the following forms to receive GST credit:

If you were required to pay for your own employment expenses at work, you will be able to claim GST/HST rebate for these expenses if they are included in the GST/HST eligible expenses. Note that to claim GST/HST due to employment expenses, your employer needs to sign the T2200 declaration of employment, and you are required to file the T777 Statement of employment expenses. Please visit did you know you can claim the GST/HST Rebate on your expenses? for further information.


If you need any further assistance please contact our phone support team or contact us directly on Facebook or Twitter.
