Carbon Tax Rebate 2024

The Carbon Tax, or Fuel Charge, in Canada is applied as a regulatory fee or tax on the carbon content of fuels at the provincial, territorial, or federal level. As of 2023, the minimum tax is set at CA$65 per tonne of CO2 equivalent, and it is set to rise to CA$170 by 2030. To alleviate the burden of this tax on residents of New Brunswick, Ontario, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba, the Canada Revenue Agency will soon issue the Carbon Tax Rebate 2024.

If you are a resident of one of these provinces, you are eligible to receive the Carbon Tax Rebate, which is distributed in four equal installments. This tax-free rebate is provided to qualified taxpayers to offset the cost of federal pollution pricing. The rebate includes a basic amount and an additional amount for residents of small and rural communities.

Note: The October payment for residents of New Brunswick includes a double payment covering July to September 2023 and October to December 2023.

Residents of small and rural areas will need to respond to the 2022 rural supplement question on their 2023 income tax and benefit return, after which a retroactive payment will be issued for the 2022 base year.

Additionally, rural residents in provinces other than Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, and Labrador will receive a 10% rural supplement, not indicated above.

Carbon Tax Rebate Payment Date – When is it Coming?

Eligible residents of the mentioned provinces will receive their Carbon Tax Rebate for 2024 in April, July, October, and January, on the 15th of each month. If the 15th falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or a federal holiday, payments will be issued on the last business day.

For example, this year, October 15th falls on a Sunday, so you can expect to receive your CAIP on the following Monday. If you have opted for direct deposit, your rebate will be deposited directly into your account. However, if you owe tax debt to the Canada Revenue Agency, this amount will be used to offset any outstanding income tax balances.

How Do I Know If I Am Eligible for Carbon Tax Rebate?

Determining eligibility for the CAIF incentive is straightforward. To qualify, you must be a Canadian resident for income tax purposes at the beginning of the month when the CRA issues the payment.

  • You have been married or previously married.
  • You are currently or were previously a parent living with your child.
