Finance committee  That's in this bill before you, and that's right. Child benefits, like some other income benefits, work on a July to June schedule. In July 2018 it will be based on your 2017 income. Both the maximum benefits and the income thresholds will be indexed at 1.5%, which is the indexat

Finance committee  It would be fair to say that we can expect it in the next budget implementation act. We'd still like, in a lot of cases, people to fill out schedule 6.

Finance committee  I think that's an important point. I'll just touch on them briefly, because others are better placed to discuss them than me. There are important initiatives in budget 2018 to provide more people support with tax filing, which is often an important gateway to receiving benefits,

Finance committee  No, it can raise their effective marginal tax rate. I think in designing an income-tested benefit like this—especially something targeted at low-income workers—the idea is...there are trade-offs and you're trying to achieve the right balance.
