How Political Tax Credits Work 

For full details on how the Ontario Political tax credit system works, consult the Elections Ontario website here. What follows is a summary.

Political tax credits make donating easier and allow you to give more. When you give $200 you get back $150 on your income tax return. So it really only costs you $50. Both the Provincial and Federal Political Tax Credits are not a deduction against your income but a real credit against your tax payable. The credit is applied against the final tax payable line on your tax form. And now should your provincial tax credit exceed your provincial tax payable, the difference is payable to you.
