dividend tax credit


A tax credit received from the Canadian government by individuals who receive dividends from Canadian corporations that have been "grossed up", or increased by 25%. This credit, equal to 25% of the dividends received, is intended to prevent double-taxation, since dividends are paid from post-tax corporate earnings, and individuals are taxed on them as well.
