Taxable income includes employment income, rental income and money you receive through some government programs.

Tax credits and deductions reduce the amount of tax you must pay. If you pay too much tax, you will get a refund. If you did not pay enough, you must pay the difference to the government. Find out more about What happens after I file my tax return?
