To get started with learning about tax deductions, one could read tax filing documentation such as Canada’s General Income Tax and Benefit Guide 2011. However if learning tax guides to discover and understand what tax credits and deductions may be applicable to you, is not something you have time or interest to do, then consulting with a professional tax accountant or local tax accounting firm can provide you with the professional service solution.
There are tax credits and tax deductions for individuals and businesses. There are some considerable increases that have occurred in existing personal tax credits from the 2010 to the 2011 tax year, such as; the basic personal amount tax credit, the spousal tax credit and the eligible dependent tax credit have all increased $10,527. More information about personal tax credit increases on existing tax credits and flow-though shares are summarized on the Madanca.com blog, in a post titled the “2011 New Personal Tax Credits and Deductions Canada” at the following URL: http://madanca.com/
