Description of final tables

For a detailed list and explanation of the changes in this year's data, please see Major changes for the 2011 tax year.

Final Table 1 provides key statistics by the province and territory of taxation for all returns, non-taxable and taxable returns.

Final Tables 2 through 5 provide statistics for 113 items grouped under source of income, deductions, non-refundable tax credits, and tax payable. In all of these tables, the 113 items remain the same; only the classification variables differ. A detailed description of each item appears in Description of items.

For each table, both the number of taxfilers and the respective dollar amounts are shown. In some cases, the total of the figures in the table may not match the total shown, due either to rounding or to editing for confidentiality purposes. For an explanation of the confidentiality procedures please refer to: Confidentiality Procedures.

Final Table 1 - General statement by province and territory of taxation
This is the only table that provides data based on the province or territory of taxation instead of province or territory of residence. This table presents tax data by province or territory and returns from outside Canada.

Multiple jurisdiction filers have been assigned to the province in which they allocated the highest percentage of their net income. In cases where it was not possible to determine to which province they had allocated the highest percentage of their net income, they were assigned to their province of residence as indicated on page 1 of the T1 General Income Tax and Benefit Return. For more information, see Provincial or territorial classification.

The column headings are:

Final Table 2 - Returns by total income class
This table presents information based on total income assessed. The table begins with the grand total. Income groupings providing figures for various income levels beginning with "$5,000 and under" up to the "$250,000 and over" income grouping follow this grand total. A sub-total for income levels of $50,000 and over follows the $250,000 and over income group.

Certain types of income are not included in total income assessed because they're non-taxable, so true economic income may be understated. An overstatement may be caused by other types of income that are grossed-up (such as eligible dividends grossed-up to 141%) or gross income. For a description of the income components, see Item 30: Total income assessed.
