TAX REFUNDS HAVE CHANGED!

Did you use to receive a large refund which included the property tax/rental credit?  This has changed!

The Ontario property tax/rental credit is no longer being paid out as a lump sum in your tax refund; your tax refund will be much smaller. 

Due to changes by the Ontario Government, Ontario credits are now being paid out in 12 monthly payments, starting July 2012 rather than a single refund.
