T1-2023 |
Quebec Pension Plan Contributions |
Schedule 8 | |||||||||||||||||||

The Canada Pension Plan (CPP) was amended to provide for the enhancement of pensions. The government of Quebec also adopted legislative amendments to enhance the Quebec Pension Plan (QPP) in a similar way as the federal plan. The enhancements are funded by additional enhanced contributions that began in January 2019. |
|||||||||||||||||||||

The contributions consist of a base amount and an enhanced amount. Your employer will have already deducted the contributions from your salary and wages. As a self-employed individual, you will calculate your required contributions (if any) on this schedule including the base and enhanced amounts. |
|||||||||||||||||||||

For more information about lines 22200, 22215, 30800 and 31000, go to canada.ca/fed-tax-information. |
