Knowing the gross income is important to something like this, but it's only one piece of a very big puzzle. When you work throughout the year, your employer withholds amounts for CPP, EI and Income tax. Later, when you do your tax return, if you get a refund it means that the one or more of the amounts withheld was too high. At $17,000 in Ontario, the person should have paid about $1,200 in income tax. If he paid more, he'll get a refund of the excess. If he paid less, he has to pay the remainder by April 30th, 2014.
