The following explanation simplifies the calculation of the tax by displaying only the final result of the Net Income.

For an employee

Net Income = Taxable Income – Canadian Tax – Alberta Tax – CPP – EI

For self-employed workers

The same calculation must be made for the self-employed worker. Individuals are resident in the CPP. The self-employed must pay more than an employee.


Each province differs in its tax rates and brackets.

The tax threshold for the basic personal credit or amount is the portion of the wage that is entitled to a tax rate of 0%. This amount comes under non-refundable tax credit.

The federal threshold is the same as the MPB at $ 12,298, however the federal government for 2020 has implemented an additional threshold and subsequent years. This additional threshold is set at $ 13,229 for brackets ranging from 0 to $ 150,473.

Starting from this amount, the additional amount decreases to $ 12,298 at $ 214,368 in salary. This therefore represents an additional declining amount of 1.457078%. The provincial threshold for Alberta is $ 19 369.
