Performing a TD1 Revision
TD1 revision required for employees in Prince Edward Island
The Prince Edward Island budget, tabled on April 19, 2017, announced that effective January 1, 2017, the province will increase the basic personal amount to $8,160 from $8,000. Since $8,000 has been used for employees for the first six months of this year, a basic personal amount of $8,320 will be applied for the remaining six months commencing with the first payroll in July. In order to have the prorated amount applied, perform the TD1 Revision function that automatically adjusts the tax credit amounts for the affected employees.
This process will also automatically update certain Provincial Claim amounts. Do not run the TD1 revision process more than once.
