When is working income tax benefit (WITB) paid? My tax refund doesn't line up with TurboTax & Assessment?
I am confused about the WITB.
I recently received my tax refund, which was for the amount I would get back based on my T4 earnings.
I filed as a single parent with a dependent, who was equivalent of spouse. I also claimed the WITB for myself--I'm assuming you can't double use the credit with your dependent?
Anyway, I understand the advanced payments (for following year's expected earnings) are made with the GST credit payments. I want to know if my 2014 qualified WITB credits would be a part of my tax refund, or if it is credited in equal amounts for the next four GST payments?
Would this be why my tax refund doesn't match my assessment amount? I am waiting for my CRA security code to come in the mail--mail hasn't gone this week due to weather--but the basic info I see (payable/owed) on the electronic notice of assessment indicates that my refund should have been for ~$1,300 more. I can't tell if there is more info till I get the code, but it seems maybe it has something to do with the WITB?
Thanks for the clarification to whoever answers!
