Advantages of Payroll Deduction

Wondering what's so great about payroll deduction? The answer is immediate tax savings!

Why wait for tax season to get your refund? With payroll deduction for your RRSP, you get an immediate "at source" tax rebate. That's right, you get the tax refund with each paycheque! Take a look at this example:

Semi Monthly Pay $2,000 $2,000
RSP Payroll Deduction -   (200)
Taxes Payable (413) (353)
Net Pay $1,588 $1,447
RSP Contribution -   200
Increase in Net Worth = $59 $1,588 $1,647
Effective Tax Rate 20.6% 17.6%

By taking advantage of payroll deduction, you increase your net worth by $59, lower your effective tax rate and save $200 for retirement - all for a cost of only $141!

In addition, by using payroll deduction, you also gain the advantages of dollar cost averaging.
