Textbook amount

The federal textbook amount has been eliminated for 2017 and subsequent tax years. Go to the General Income Tax and Benefit Guide to see if you are eligible to claim a provincial or territorial textbook amount.

 Unused textbook amounts from years prior to 2017 can be carried forward.
