16K income last year and full time student and CRA assessment made the CPP exempt (CPP refund as well-carry forward increased by the CPP amount. Should I make exempt?


Ok I'm answering this question while in Venice Italy, just so you know!

Short answer is yes, you probably won't have tax on taxable income.
This is because you personal credit and Tuition Credit are enough to pay the the tax that would be due from your income.

A slight embellishment. You are not exempt from paying tax, no one is except our glorious queen, Elizabeth II, Deo Gratiius.

Exemption is a word only used in connection with certain types of income, which are:
-amounts not subject to tax , such as Lottery winnings(why?)
-amounts that have already been taxed, such as a foreign pension from India.

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
