Canada Revenue Agency/Tax Tip: Ontario Child Benefit

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Jan. 29, 2008) -

Did you know...

That the Government of Ontario has created the Ontario Child Benefit (OCB) to help Ontario families with low or modest incomes to provide for their children? In July 2008, the OCB will provide up to $600 per child per year for each dependent child under the age of 18. It will be delivered monthly with the Canada Child Tax Benefit (CCTB).

If your children are registered for the CCTB, you are automatically enrolled for the OCB, and you do not need to apply. If your children are not registered for the CCTB, you can apply for the OCB by completing Form RC66, Canada Child Benefits Application (http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/E/pbg/tf/rc66/README.html). You can get a copy of the form by calling the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) at 1-800-959-2221 or by downloading it from the CRA Web site.
