There are some tax deductions and credits you know you should claim on your income tax return every year. It’s unlikely you’ll ever forget to deduct your RRSP contributions, for example, and claiming a tax credit for your charitable donations is a no-brainer.

However in the market of no annual fee cards these Tangerine offers are definitely some of the best out there…
