Staycation Tax Credit

Ontario residents planning a getaway in Ontario in 2022 could get back up to 20% on eligible accommodation expenses with the new, temporary Ontario Staycation Tax Credit.

The temporary Ontario Staycation Tax Credit is a personal income tax credit for eligible Ontario residents to claim 20% of qualified accommodation expenses for vacations taken between January 1-December 31, 2022 in Ontario, up to a maximum of $1,000 for an individual and $2,000 for a family. So that translates to a maximum savings of $200 or $400, respectively.

Apply for the Ontario Staycation Tax Credit 

Residents of Ontario who take a leisure trip in the province and stay at an eligible accommodation can apply for this refundable credit when they file their 2022 personal income tax returns. Learn more about eligible accommodations at ontario.ca/staycation.
