Federal Tax Credit
The 15% public transit tax credit offered by the federal government was eliminated on July 1, 2017. For 2017, only monthly passes from January to June 2017 were eligible.
Visit the Canada Revenue Agency Web site for more details about the federal tax credit.
You do not have to submit documentation proving the purchase of your pass when you file your federal income tax return. However, you must keep the following documents in case the Canada Revenue Agency asks you to submit them.
Documentation to keep
Cam-Puce, Cam-Puce UQO and Cam-Puce Cégep passes (4-month semester passes)
Receipt issued when you purchased the pass. Make a photocopy of it to ensure it will last.
Photocopy of your Multi (or Passe-Partout PLUS) card to be able to match the reference number on your receipt with the number on your card.
Bank statements. The monthly debits taken by the STO are identified on the statement
Photocopy of the T4 slip, which shows the deductions at source taken by your employer to purchase your pass. They are identified in box 84 – Public transit pass, in the “Other information” area on this slip.
