Detailed Canadian Income Tax and RRSP
The detailed income tax calculators include the
calculation of most available deductions and tax credits. They
also show how much you will save from your RRSP contribution. The 2014/2015 calculators include the
Tax Cut, which is a form of notional income splitting for couples
with children under 18. The Family Tax Cut is eliminated for 2016
as per the Liberal
platform, but no formal announcement has yet been made, as of
December 1, 2015.
Calculate the tradesperson's tools deduction and
apprentice mechanic's tools deduction, as well as the adjusted cost of
employee tools, and amount to include in income when tools are sold
(if there has been a previous tool deduction taken for the sold
tools). See our article on Employee
Tools Deductions for more information.
Determine before-tax income, minimum withdrawals, how long your RRIF will
last. Use if you haven't yet transferred to a RRIF, also works for RRIFs
already set up. This calculator includes the RRIF factors proposed by the
Federal 2015 Budget, with an option to use the old factors. The old
factors are for RRIFs set up after 1992. If you have a RRIF set up before
1993 and want to use the old factors, use the RRIF Withdrawal Calculator.
Withdrawal Calculator - discontinued
This calculator used RRIF factors which are no longer
in effect. The RRIF factors are now the same regardless of when the RRIF was
created. Use the above RRSP/RRIF Withdrawal Calculator.

the Results of Calculators
You can either use the Print button of the calculator, or,
depending on your browser, right-click and choose print preview, or use the
browser print function. If you use Chrome or Firefox, the results should
all print on the width of one page. With Chrome, it doesn't seem to spew
out a couple of unnecessary pages before printing the actual calculator data, as
with Firefox and Internet Explorer (IE). Using IE, the results don't
always print on the width of one page. To get it to print on the width of
1 page, from your browser menu do File Print, Preferences, Advanced, Fit to paper size. This setting may not be available for all printers.
You should also get to the same settings by choosing "Print using system
dialogue" after clicking the Print icon in the calculator. When in IE, there is also a printer icon at the top where
you can choose Print, Print Preview, or Page Setup. In Page Setup, make sure “Enable Shrink-to-Fit”
is ticked. However, I’m sure this was ticked already when the pages didn’t all fit on the
page for me.
We would like the print function of our calculators to only
print the calculator data, and not the headings, footings, or ads. We've
requested this feature from the software providers, and they are working on it.
