Are your children 16 years of age or younger? You need to read this!
For the 2015 tax year you can claim up to $1,000 of eligible fitness fees per child. The amount of the credit is 15% of the eligible costs. An important change for the 2015 year is that the Children’s Fitness Tax Credit is now refundable. This means that even if you are not paying any taxes you can get a refund from just claiming the Children’s Fitness Tax Credit for your children.
Note that children must have been 16 years of age at the beginning of the year in which an eligible fitness expense was paid. Examples of eligible costs include costs for hockey, golf lessons, horse-back riding and bowling.
