Filling out Form TD1
Fill out this form only if 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
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
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 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 TD1, check this box, enter "0" on line 13 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 2020?
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 $12,298, 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 $12,298), 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 2020, you may be able to claim the child amount on
Form TD1SK, 2020 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 2020,
you can claim any of the following:
$11.00 for each day that you live in the prescribed northern zone
$22.00 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.

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 and benefit 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 and benefit 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.
