Public transit tax credit

A tax credit for public transit is applicable for the 2017 personal income tax return, and applies to the cost of purchasing monthly (or long-term) passes.

Offered to public transit users, this credit applies to the cost of the subscription for the period of January 1 to June 30, 2017 only (line 364-T1 of the federal income tax return).

In their tax return, transit customers can apply for a refund of a portion of the cost of their monthly titles and those of their dependents (spouse or common law spouse and children under 19 years of age, if no credit has been claimed by them).

Note that this credit applies to tickets valid from January to June 30, 2017 only. The credit is no longer in effect since July 1, 2017.

Users must be able to provide receipts or proofs of purchase in the event the Canada Revenue Agency so requests.

It is strongly recommended to make photocopies of your receipts as certain vending machines use thermal inkjet which fades over time.
