If you received your 2012-2013 CRA GST/HST credit notice summarizing upcoming payments for the Federal GST/HST Credit, BC Climate Action Tax Credit, and BC HST Credit, you’ll notice that the final BC HST Credit payment will be made on January 4, 2013. This is due to the re-introduction of the Provincial Sales Tax on April 1, 2013.
For eligible BC residents, the maximum BC HST credit is/was $230 for yourself, $230 for your spouse or common-law partner and $230 for each qualified dependent.
The BC Refundable Sales Tax Credit will be re-introduced for 2013 and later years. You’ll be able to claim up to $75 for yourself and $75 for your spouse or common-law partner.
