Nova Scotia Income Tax Rates


Nova Scotia provincial tax rates are below in chart and tables formats. You can use the form below to select a tax year and optionally combine the federal tax rates with the provincial tax rates. The Basic Personal Amount for the tax types you select will be included by default.

There are also many government benefits that are income tested, meaning that as your income increases, the amount of the benefit you receive decreases. This is effectively the same as paying additional tax. To include the impact of government benefits in the tax, use the Effective Tax Rate Calculator.
