OTTAWA — Stephen Harper promised $380-million worth of tax credits Monday for parents with young children. The Conservative leader said that, if re-elected, his government would give a new tax break for children enrolled in arts activities and would extend tax credits for children’s sports programs and for programs that help families save for a child’s post-secondary education.
A new Children’s Arts Tax Credit would allow families to deduct up to $500 per year for the cost of enrolling in arts programs from one parent’s taxable income.
