Taxes play a very important role in the functioning of a government. They help us in attaining a secure role under the various benefits a government provides its citizens with. Not only they help the nation perform better but also provide amenities for families with certain lucrative benefits. There are a lot of concessions and schemes made for families which aim to provide a better future life and also reduce the amount owed to the government. All these schemes made for families help with the family’s expenses and costs throughout the year. All these schemes have been formed to aid families in need of support and financing.
Tax benefits for families
Child benefits help families with children who are under 18 with certain schemes. These families may be entitled not to pay monthly taxes. They help and aid families financially to raise their children. Families opting for this scheme will have to be first deemed eligible. The individual and his spouse will also have to file tax returns at the end of a year. The benefit for Universal Child Care allows eligible families to receive a monthly sum from the government to raise each child under the age of 18. If a family’s child has attended an event for their welfare concerning any kind of developmental, cultural artistic or recreational, they will get the entire sum they paid for that event or camp. A parent may also be able to claim around a sum of 1000$ per child who had/has participated in any kind of sports recognized by the government. Families may also receive some expenses related to child care such as preschool, day care, health, etc.
There are also a lot of schemes and incentives for people with disabilities. A family may be eligible for Child Disability Benefit if any one of their children or spouse is disabled, impaired or suffering from a condition. The family must fill up Form T2201 and the certificate for family disability. If an individual is also caring for another sick or impaired individual they can claim an additional 2093$ when filing for tax returns. There are also various other miscellaneous schemes where individuals buying housing, medicines and medical expenses, using public transport, volunteering, pursuing education at the standard and high standard level can expect certain tax benefits and claims all which aid in their financial expenses. One needs to know all about these or take the help of a professional before filing their income tax return.
