|May 17, 2018||Dataset published|
Thank you for your enquiry regarding personal income tax brackets from the time Canada began collecting taxes.
The CRA develops and maintains tax information content in print and web based tax products to allow Canadians to meet their tax obligations and receive their credit and benefit entitlements. As such, the personal income tax brackets for the 1985 and later tax years are made available online at: “Canadian income tax rates for individuals - current and previous years" (https://www.canada.ca/en/revenue-agency/services/tax/individuals/frequently-asked-questions-individuals/canadian-income-tax-rates-individuals-current-previous-years.html). Historical information on tax brackets prior to 1985 may be obtained by searching for Income Tax Act on the Justice Laws website at laws-lois.justice.gc.ca.
