If you have to fill out a TD1 Form, then we are going to explain the exact process for it right here.

What is a TD1 Form?

TD1 form is a form that is used to calculate one’s federal and provincial personal tax credits. There are two main reasons for filing form TD1:

  1. Starting a new job
  2. Changing the employer.

What happens if I don’t fill out form TD1?

You may be contemplating what happens if you don’t fill out the TD1 form? Well, it is crucial to carefully complete the TD1 form since doing otherwise might lead you to pay the government money in the form of back taxes.

If your paperwork and important documents are not delivered by the deadline of seven (7) days, then late fines of $25 per day, up to a maximum of $2500, can be imposed.

The Personal Tax Credits Return (TD1) is a document used to calculate how much income tax will be withheld from your paycheck. In general, the amount of income tax withheld from each paycheck is smaller the larger the claim amount.

90% rule – What does it mean?

You must be familiar with the 90% rule. This rule states that if you earned income from outside Canada in the same tax year you earned income from Canadian sources, you might not be entitled to claim personal tax credits.

Thus, to help you with tax preparation, Pro-Finance E&E Limited has shared with you the in-depth analysis of the TD1 forms so you could easily fill them.

Purpose of the Form

Let your employers know your situation so they can deduct the correct amounts from your paychecks. The TD1 form does not affect how much tax you pay, only the amount that is deducted.

If your employer deducts too much from your pay cheque by mistake, you will receive a refund soon. If your employer does not deduct the correct amount, then you will owe that tax when you file your 2022 personal tax return.
