Filling out Form TD1NS
Fill out this form only if you are an employee working in Nova Scotia or a pensioner residing in Nova Scotia and any of the following apply:
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); 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 TD1NS, 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 TD1NS for
2020, 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
TD1NS, check this box, enter "0" on line 12 and do not fill in lines 2 to 11.
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 12. Then your employer
or payer will not deduct tax from your earnings.
Additional tax to be deducted
If you wish to have more tax deducted, fill in "Additional tax to be deducted" on the federal Form TD1.
Reduction in tax deductions
You can ask to have less tax deducted on your income tax and benefit 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.
