Change in the Calculation of Solidarity Tax Credit Payments

As of January 5, 2012, payments of the solidarity tax credit will be calculated differently. In 2012, the tax credit will be paid in twelve instalments, whereas in 2011, it was paid in six instalments. Therefore, the amount you receive in 2012 may be different from the amount you received in 2011.

Moreover, payments of the solidarity tax credit will be indexed, and the housing component of the credit will increase for individuals who receive that component.

To estimate the monthly payments you may be entitled to receive for 2012, use the Solidarity Tax Credit Payments Estimator.
