RRSP contribution deadline is fast approaching.
Important points to remember:
1. The date for final contributions is March 1, 2013.
2. The maximum allowable contribution for 2012 is the lesser of $22,970 or 18% of earned income, less pension adjustment. The limit for 2013 is $23,820.
If you are unsure of your personal allowable contribution for the current period, you can contact the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) through an automated phone system at 1-800-267-6999. You must have your Social Insurance Number and line 150 from last year's tax return available. Or, check your notice of assessment on your previous year's tax return.
