The province or territory where you live determines your annual income tax rate, with the amount owing varying widely across the country.

This interactive chart tells you what you paid as of June 2015, but keep in mind changes took effect on Jan. 1

The province or territory where you live determines your annual income tax rate, with how much you owe varying widely across the country.

The interactive graph below shows how much federal and provincial income tax Canadians pay in each province and territory as of June 30, 2015, at eight different income levels, ranging from $25,000 to $130,000.

But things will look different come tax time next year. Not only did the federal government lower the marginal tax rate on many middle-income Canadians on Jan. 1, some provinces, such as New Brunswick, have also altered their rates.

To use the graph, click on a province's name to select or deselect individual provinces and territories.

You can also scroll over each income-related data point on the graph to see the specific tax bill for each province and territory at each income level.
