Ontario refundable media tax credits

Important notice

Temporary changes to the Ontario media tax credits (except for the computer animation and special effects credit) have been announced, due to COVID-19. See what's new for Ontario corporations

The CRA, through the Film Services Units, reviews and audits the Ontario refundable media tax credit claims mentioned below.


Before claiming the credit, you must apply online to Ontario Creates for a certificate of eligibility.

All corporations with annual gross revenue of more than $1 million have to file their T2 return electronically, except for:

  • insurance corporations
  • non-resident corporations
  • corporations reporting in functional currency
  • corporations that are exempt from tax payable under section 149 of the Income Tax Act

If you file your T2 return electronically, see T2 Attach-a-Doc.

If you file a paper return, send the return and required attachments to your tax centre.

For more details about what happens after we receive your claim, see After you file your claim for Ontario refundable media tax credits.
