Note: Line 30000 was line 300 before tax year 2019.

Completing your tax return

On line 30000 of your return enter the basic personal amount.

If your net income at line 23600 of your return is $150,473 or less, enter $13,229 on line 30000. If your net income is $214,368 or more, enter $12,298. Otherwise, complete the calculation using the Worksheet for the return to determine how much to claim on line 30000.

Remember to claim the corresponding provincial or territorial non-refundable tax credit to which you are entitled, on line 58040 of your provincial or territorial Form 428.


Special rules apply to claims for this amount if you were bankrupt during the tax year or if you immigrate to or emigrate from Canada in the tax year. For information about these rules, contact the CRA.
