Working income tax benefit (WITB)

The working income tax benefit (WITB) is a refundable tax credit intended to provide tax relief for eligible working low-income individuals and families who are already in the workforce and to encourage other Canadians to enter the workforce.

You can claim the WITB on line 453 of your 2016 income tax and benefit return. However, eligible individuals and families may be able to apply for the 2017 advance payments.
