New TFSA Contribution Room for 2013

The new TFSA contribution limit for 2013 is $5,500. Please keep in mind that the limit for each year prior to 2013 was $5,000. This means that the total amount you can invest in TFSAs to the end of 2013 is $25,500.

It's up to you to track your TFSA contribution limits, so please be sure you are not over-contributing. Over-contributions are subject to a 1% per month penalty tax until the funds are removed from the TFSA or additional room becomes available with a new calendar year.

If you're unsure of your contribution room, you can verify your limits in one of the following ways:

  1. Call the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA)'s TIPS line at 1.800.267.6999.
  2. Use CRA's My Account.
  3. Use CRA's Quick Access.
