Form TD1, Personal Tax Credits Return is a form used in Canada to determine the amount of tax to be deducted from an individual's employment income or other income, such as pension.

In this article, we cover:

Completing TD1 form

Because federal and provincial tax rates and credits differ, there are provincial and federal forms that need to be completed and uploaded to the Remote platform. 

  • TD1 is the national document that all employees resident in Canada must complete.
  • Additional TD1 forms apply to specific provinces. These are labeled with extra letters, i.e. “TD1NB” which refers to “TD1 New Brunswick” and “TD1ON” is an abbreviation for “TD1 Ontario”. If you are an employee, you will need to complete both a federal and a provincial form and submit it to your employer(Remote).
    Note: As an employee, you need to fill out a provincial form based on where you live, not where you work.

For more information and to view the form, please visit TD1 forms for 2023 for pay received on January 1, 2023 or later.

Tax forms are a mandatory item to be completed during onboarding. You will be prompted to complete and upload these forms to your Documents tab after you've completed self-enrollment on the Remote platform.
