who lives with you, and whose net income for the year will be less than $11,474 ($13,595 if he or she is infirm and you cannot claim
the family caregiver amount for children under age 18 for this dependant), enter the difference between this amount and his or

relative (aged 18 or older) who is dependent on you because of an infirmity, enter $6,788.
If the dependant's net income for the year will be between $15,940 and $20,607 ($15,940 and $22,728 if he or she is infirm) and
you want to calculate a partial claim, get Form TD1-WS and fill in the appropriate section.

spouse's or common-law partner's relative, who lives in Canada, and whose net income for the year will be $6,807 or less, enter

income for the year will be between $6,807 and $13,595 and you want to calculate a partial claim, get Form TD1-WS and fill in the
appropriate section.
11. Amounts transferred from your spouse or common-law partner – If your spouse or common-law partner will not use all of
his or her age amount, pension income amount, tuition, education and textbook amounts, or disability amount on his
or her income tax return, enter the unused amount.

Filling out Form TD1
Fill out this form only if:
you have a new employer or payer and you will receive salary, wages, commissions, pensions, employment insurance benefits, or any other
remuneration;
you want to change amounts you previously claimed (for example, the number of your eligible dependants has changed);
you want to claim the deduction for living in a prescribed zone; or
you want to increase the amount of tax deducted at source.
Sign and date it, and give it to your employer or payer.
If you do not fill out Form TD1, your employer or payer will deduct taxes after allowing the basic personal amount only.
More than one employer or payer at the same time
If you have more than one employer or payer at the same time and you have already claimed personal tax credit amounts on another Form TD1
for 2016, you cannot claim them again. If your total income from all sources will be more than the personal tax credits you claimed on another
Form TD1, check this box, enter "0" on line 13 on the front page, and do not fill in lines 2 to 12.
Total income less than total claim amount
Check this box if your total income for the year from all employers and payers will be less than your total claim amount on line 13. Your employer or
payer will not deduct tax from your earnings.
Non-residents (Only fill in if you are a non-resident of Canada.)
As a non-resident of Canada, will 90% or more of your world income be included in determining your taxable income earned in Canada in 2016?
Yes (Fill out the previous page.)
No (Enter "0" on line 13, and do not fill in lines 2 to 12 as you are not entitled to the personal tax credits.)
If you are unsure of your residency status, call the international tax and non-resident enquiries line at 1-800-959-8281.
Provincial or territorial personal tax credits return
If your claim amount on line 13 is more than $11,474, you also have to fill out a provincial or territorial TD1 form. If you are an employee, use the
Form TD1 for your province or territory of employment. If you are a pensioner, use the Form TD1 for your province or territory of residence. Your employer or
payer will use both this federal form and your most recent provincial or territorial Form TD1 to determine the amount of your tax deductions.
If you are claiming the basic personal amount only (your claim amount on line 13 is $11,474), your employer or payer will deduct provincial or territorial taxes
after allowing the provincial or territorial basic personal amount.
Note: If you are a Saskatchewan resident supporting children under 18 at any time during 2016, you may be able to claim the child amount on
Form TD1SK, 2016 Saskatchewan Personal Tax Credits Return. Therefore, you may want to fill out Form TD1SK even if you are only claiming the basic
personal amount on this form.
Deduction for living in a prescribed zone
If you live in the Northwest Territories, Nunavut, Yukon, or another prescribed northern zone for more than six months in a row beginning or ending in 2016,
you can claim:
$8.25 for each day that you live in the prescribed northern zone; or
$16.50 for each day that you live in the prescribed northern zone if, during that time, you live in a dwelling
that you maintain, and you are the only person living in that dwelling who is claiming this deduction.
$
Employees living in a prescribed intermediate zone can claim 50% of the total of the above amounts.
For more information, go to www.cra.gc.ca/northernresidents.
Additional tax to be deducted
You may want to have more tax deducted from each payment, especially if you receive other income, including non-employment
income such as CPP or QPP benefits, or old age security pension. By doing this, you may not have to pay as much tax when you
file your income tax return. To choose this option, state the amount of additional tax you want to have deducted from each
payment. To change this deduction later, fill out a new Form TD1.
$
Reduction in tax deductions
You can ask to have less tax deducted on your income tax return if you are eligible for deductions or non-refundable tax credits that are not listed on this form
(for example, periodic contributions to a registered retirement savings plan (RRSP), child care or employment expenses, charitable donations, and tuition and
education amounts carried forward from the previous year). To make this request, fill out Form T1213, Request to Reduce Tax Deductions at Source, to get a
letter of authority from your tax services office. Give the letter of authority to your employer or payer. You do not need a letter of authority if your employer
deducts RRSP contributions from your salary.
