ON – Ontario sales tax credit payments begin

As part of the transition to the Harmonized Sales Tax, the government of Ontario introduced a new Sales Tax Credit for low and middle income individuals and families in the province. The sales tax credit of up to $260 for each adult or child in a family will be paid in four payments each year.

The harmonized sales tax was introduced in Ontario on July 1, 2010, and the provincial government recently announced that the first Sales Tax Credit payments will be sent out during the week of August 16, 2010.

More information on the credit, including eligibility rules and how to claim the credit, can be found on the Ontario government Web site at http://www.rev.gov.on.ca/en/credit/stc/index.html.
