9 Handy Tax Credits Quebecers Can Claim To Save $$$ On Their Taxes This Year

From digital news subscriptions to student loan interest... you can claim it!

Doing taxes can be overwhelming, especially since each province and territory has its own system. What most Canadians want to know is how to pay less income tax — and that means taking advantage of tax credits in Canada and Quebec

Put simply, tax credits allow you to "write off" expenses, deducting money from the amount you owe or adding to the amount you get back from the government. Non-refundable credits help with the former and refundable credits help with the latter, FYI.
