What’s new as of July 1, 2020

The major changes made to this guide since the last edition are outlined.
This guide reflects some income tax changes recently announced will be effective July 1, 2020.
The Yukon budget, delivered on March 5, 2020, announced changes for the 2020 taxation year.
The Yukon Basic Personal Amount (BPAYT) has been changed to mirror the Federal Basic Personal Amount (BPAF).
To adjust for the first six months, a prorated calculation will apply for the remaining six months, commencing with the first payroll in July.
Starting July 1, 2020 the formula below will apply for BPAYT. The prorated amounts in the formula are $14,160 and the factor ($1,862 / $63,895).
The prorated formula is :

Where NI* ≤ $150,473, BPAYT = $14,160
Where $150,473 < NI* < $214,368, BPAYT**= $14,160 - (NI* - $150,473) x ($1,862 / $63,895)***
Where NI* ≥ $214,368, BPAYT = $12,298

* Variable NI represents Net Income
** If the BPAYT has three or more digits after the decimal point, increase the second digit after the decimal point by one if the third
digit is five or more, and drop the third digit. If the third digit after the decimal point is less than five, drop the third digit
*** Note that there is no rounding on this division
The Yukon Claim Code Chart has been removed as the BPAYT will be unique to each employee’s annual income.

Given the current situation with COVID-19 pandemic we understand that employers are facing unique challenges. For the remainder of 2020 the CRA will expect this change to be implemented on a best efforts basis.

Claim codes

You may have to ask your employees or your pensioners to complete a federal and a provincial personal tax credits return using a federal Form TD1 and a provincial Form TD1.
The total personal amount an employee claims on a TD1 form will determine which claim code you use. The claim amounts that correspond to the federal claim codes are not the same as the claim amounts that correspond to the provincial claim codes. Go to Chart 1 and Chart 2.

The claim codes and corresponding amounts do not appear on either the federal or the provincial TD1 form.

Explanation of claim codes

Claim code 0

This code represents no claim amount. If the federal claim code is “0” because the employee is a non-resident, the provincial claim code must also be “0.” This code may also be used if the employee indicated they have more than one employer or payer at the same time and have entered “0” on the front page of Form TD1 for 2020.

Claim codes 1 to 10

You match the total claim amount reported on your employee’s or pensioner’s TD1 forms with the appropriate claim codes. Then, you look up the tax for the employee’s pay under the claim code in the federal and provincial tax tables for the pay period.

Indexing of federal claim codes amounts

The credits that apply to each federal and provincial claim code have been automatically changed in the tax tables by the indexing factor for the current year. If your employee did not complete the federal and provincial TD1 forms for 2020, you continue to deduct income tax using the same claim code that you used last year.

Chart 1 – 2020 Federal claim codes

Note:
Due to the December 9, 2019 announcement, legislative changes to the Federal Basic Personal Amount, the Claim Code Chart cannot be produced with ranges, as was previously done. Accordingly, the Federal Claim Code Chart will not be produced with this edition

Chart 2 – 2020 Yukon claim codes

Note:
Due to the March 5, 2020 announcement, legislative changes to the Yukon Basic Personal Amount, the Claim Code Chart cannot be produced with ranges, as was previously done. Accordingly, the Yukon Claim Code Chart will not be produced with this edition.

Employment income from all sources

On the federal and territorial TD1 forms, under the heading “Income from other employers or payers,” employees can indicate that their expected employment income from all sources will be less than their total claim amount. If an employee states that his or her total expected income will be less than the “Total claim amount” of the TD1 forms, do not deduct any federal or territorial tax.

However, as an employer, if you know that this statement is false, you must deduct federal and territorial tax from the salary. Deduct tax according to the claim code that applies to the “Total claim amount” of the TD1 forms.

It is a serious offence to knowingly accept a Form TD1 that contains false or deceptive statements. If you are not sure a statement is true, contact your tax services office for advice.
