Getting an education pays. and not just for our kids. However, the rules around who is eligible and how these tax credits work may get complicated or missed all together if you are unaware or unsure of them. Credits may be eligible to transfer, or can be saved for use in the future. Either way, our professional tax advisors at O.B.S. Financial will guide you through your school woe's.
No matter your age, if you are going to school the Tax Man approves. The tuition that you pay is eligible for a non-refundable tax credit. This means that the amount you pay provides you with a 15% decrease in taxes owing federally as well as a 10.8% Manitoba decrease. That means that you recieve 25.8% of your tuition back in the form of tax relief.
