How does Employment Insurance affect my taxes?
Employment insurance is considered as taxable income. Yes EI does take off tax when you are receiving the benefits, however the amount is usually 10%. If you have any additional income before or after EI, this will be all calculated on your next tax return. If you are in a higher tax bracket and your tax rate is 28%, then you will most likely have to pay additional tax for the EI income. This is very common when it comes time to do your taxes. Therefore the additional tax you will owe would be 28% - 10%. 18% would be the amount you would pay on the EI income you received for the year.
