Personal Income Tax
Saskatchewan's personal income tax is determined by applying provincial tax rates directly to taxable income and then deducting provincial tax credits. Provincial tax rates are applied in a three-rate, graduated structure.
Provincial tax credits generally parallel federal credits. However, the provincial tax system includes a supplement to the age amount and a dependent child amount. These credits are in addition to the provincial basic and spousal credit amounts, provincial tax credits for seniors, the disabled, caregivers, Canada Pension Plan and Employment Insurance contributions, pension income, student loan interest, medical expenses and charitable donations.
The 2017-18 Budget announced that Personal Income Tax rates will be reduced in two half-point increments effective July 1, 2017 and July 1, 2019 to foster greater productivity and investment within the provincial economy.
The Saskatchewan personal income tax system is administered on the Province’s behalf by the Canada Revenue Agency in conjunction with the administration of the federal income tax system. Provincial personal income tax forms are produced and distributed by the Agency.
