The B.C. Low Income Climate Action Tax Credit helps offset the impact of the carbon taxes paid by low income individuals or families.

The Low Income Climate Action Tax Credit is combined with the federal goods and services tax/harmonized sales tax (GST/HST) credit into one quarterly payment. The payments are issued by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) four times a year in July, October, January and April, and generally fall on the fifth day of the month.

You're eligible to claim the credit if you're a resident of B.C. and you:

  • are 19 years of age or older, or
  • have a spouse or common-law partner, or
  • are a parent who resides with your child.

Only one person can apply for the credit on behalf of the family.
