Do you need to fill out new 2012 TD1 forms? 

If your claim amount for income tax deductions has changed, please ensure you complete both provincial and federal TD1 forms. You will know if you need to do this by reading through the 12 areas listed on each form. For example, if you are now a student, or no longer a student or recently had a child, you will need to complete new forms for 2012.

Completing the forms ensures tax deductions are calculated properly if you are eligible for tax credits other than the basic personal exemption. If your circumstances have not changed, you do not need to complete new forms.
