Ontario boosts dividend tax credit

In very good news for preferred share investors, Ontario increased the dividend tax credit from 5.13% to 6.5%. The tax credit will rise in stages over the next four years, reaching 7.7 per cent in 2010.

There is nothing in the Official Press Release that indicates the dollars-and-cents value of this increase, but doubtless the accounting firms are working it out now and I’ll post updates when I get them.
