Comparing 2013 and 2014 returns, mostly the same but provincial and federal each 500 higher

I am retired

only variance between this year and last year was a took out an extra $3700 from RSP

Would this cause both my Federal and provincial payables to shoot up $500 each??

Total earnings was $23k


Is there something im missing???

Answer

It is quite possible.,because we have basic deductibles on both levels of government.  I don;t know exact numbers;however they are around 12000 $. The tax "hit" is combined 17% in Ontario (12% Feds and 5% ON) plus you may owe increased "health" tax. (in ON).Therefore your amount owed to CRA should increase by at least 700$, if not more. Please check your last year's return for deductibles and percentages and do some basic math...

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.
