Personal Income Tax

The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) administers the Saskatchewan personal income tax system on behalf of Saskatchewan in conjunction with the federal income tax system. To calculate Saskatchewan's personal income tax, apply provincial tax rates directly to taxable income and then deduct provincial tax credits.

Tax credits

Provincial tax credits generally parallel federal credits. However, the provincial tax system includes a dependent child amount as well as a supplement to the age amount. These credits are in addition to:

  • The provincial basic credit;
  • Spousal credit amounts;
  • Provincial tax credits for
    • seniors,
    • the disabled, and
    • caregivers;
  • Canada Pension Plan contributions;
  • Employment Insurance contributions;
  • Pension income;
  • Student loan interest;
  • Medical expenses; and,
  • Charitable donations.
