Additional tax to be deducted
You may want to have more tax deducted from each payment, especially if you receive other income, including non-employment income such as CPP or QPP benefits, or old age security pension. By doing this, you may not have to pay as much tax when you file your income tax return. To choose this option, state the amount of additional tax you want to have deducted from each payment. To change this deduction later, fill out a new Form TD1.
Reduction in tax deductions
You can ask to have less tax deducted on your income tax return if you are eligible for deductions or non-refundable tax credits that are not listed on this form （for example, periodic contributions to a registered retirement savings plan （RRSP）, child care or employment expenses, charitable donations, and tuition and education amounts carried forward from the previous year）. To make this request, fill out Form T1213,Request to Reduce Tax Deductions at Source, to get a letter of authority from your tax services office Give the letter of authority to your employer or payer. You do not need a letter of authority if your employer deducts RRSP contributions from your salary.
