Income Tax Refund from Canada

Under Canadian Income Tax Act, non-residents in Canada may be subject to a tax on certain sources of income earned there.

Income taxed under Part I is subject to taxation at a rate similar to those that are applied to Canadian residents. In addition to completing the taxed income, certain applicable expenses may be applied. Generally, a non-resident will only be subject to tax under Part I on the following sources of income:

  • Income from employment in Canada
  • Income from carrying out a business in Canada
  • Taxable capital gains from the disposition of "taxable Canadian property"

A non-resident liable for tax under Part I must file the applicable Canadian tax return.

The tax rates that apply to non-resident individuals vary from 16

to 29% of their income.

In general, a non-resident will only be subject to taxation on income derived from employment in that province, or from carrying out a business through a permanent establishment in that province. However, in certain cases, provincial taxes may apply to taxable capital gains earned by a non-resident.
