According to CBC, the Federal government announced that the Federal Fitness Tax Credit will be increased from $500 to $1000 pet year for each child.
For those who can afford to put their children into sports, and have taxable income, this is a good increase.
Even better though, is the announcement of changing it to a refundable tax credit starting in 2015. This will make a difference to more families, particularly those in lower income brackets who don't have taxable income.
Make sure to gather up your receipts from this year to put into your tax files when filling your 2014 returns!
