On October 1, 2015, the Alberta government Released new Tax Rates to be brought in. In 2015, the change results in a pro-rated Tax Rate applied to all Income for the Tax year and in 2016 will be the full Tax Rates. We have prepared a table to illustrate the changes.

Personal-Income-Tax-T1-RateTo see where you’d fall, you need to consider your Taxable Income and match that up with appropriate marginal Tax bracket.

NOTE:The Tax data used comprise the combined Federal & Provincial Tax brackets and Rates. This does not comprise any federal changes that could be introduced in 2016.

For your employees, you may need to communicate why you’re deducting additional Tax. This post is entailed to articulate that you are deducting the full -rate Tax from pay cheques from October 1, 2015 which will be comparatively close to the weighted average rates for the year. For example, if you have an employee with an income of $165,000, you will be deducting the full rate as if it was 42.00% to “catch-up” on the total Tax deducted by the employer.
