GST/HST credit - How much you can expect to receive

How much you can expect to receive

Your GST/HST credit payments are based on the following:

  • your family net income
    • If you're single, the amount from line 236 of your income tax return, or the amount that it would be if you completed one
    • If you have a spouse or common-law partner, your net incomes are combined to get your family net income
  • the number of children under 19 years old that you have registered for the Canada child benefit and the GST/HST credit

Per year, you could get up to:

  • $443 if you are single
  • $580 if you are married or living common-law
  • $153 for each child under the age of 19

Be sure to keep your personal information updated to avoid underpayments or overpayments.

Use the child and family benefits calculator to get an estimate of your GST/HST credit.

What can affect your payment amount

The Canada Revenue Agency could recalculate your GST/HST credit payment when:

  • a reassessment of either your or your spouse or common-law partner's tax return results in a change to your family net income
  • your eligible child turns 19 years of age
  • your marital status changes
  • the number of eligible children in your care changes
  • a recipient dies
  • you start, or stop, sharing custody of a child
