A lot of people have been asking me about this one. Starting July 10th 2012, the Ontario Trillium Benefit combines, into one monthly payment, the Ontario Sales Tax Credit, the Ontario Energy & Property Tax Credit and the Northern Ontario Energy Credit. If you had received any of the 3 tax credits that have been rolled into the new Ontario Trillium Benefit your money will be coming to you every month starting July 10th, 2012.

Generally, people are upset about receiving this cheque monthly. The government announced that starting next year taxpayers will have the option to receive their Trillium Benefit in a lump sum or through the same monthly payments.
