What is a TD1 Form?
The TD1 (Personal Tax Credits Return) is a form used to determine the amount of tax to be deducted from an individual’s employment income.
There are two types of these forms; one is Federal, the other Provincial. Individuals complete the forms and submit them to their employer or payer who will keep the completed documents with their employment records. A copy of the forms should not be forwarded to the CRA.
Who Should Complete This Form?
- Individuals that have a new employer or payer
- Individuals that want to change the amounts that were previously claimed
- Individuals that want to increase the amount of tax deducted
- Individuals that want to claim a deduction for living in a prescribed zone
All of the above individuals must complete the Federal TD1 and if they are claiming more than the basic personal amounts (see table below), then they must also complete the applicable Provincial TD1 as well.
