Short title

        1. These regulations may be cited as the Newfoundland and Labrador Child Benefit Regulations, 2006.

Definitions

        2. In these regulations

             (a)  "Act" means the Income Tax Act, 2000; and

             (b)  "NLCB" means the Newfoundland and Labrador child benefit as defined in paragraph 38(1)(b) of the Act.

Qualified dependent

        3. A person who is a qualified dependent of an eligible individual on the first day of a month is a qualified dependent of that individual for that month.

Child benefit calculation

        4. The amount of the Newfoundland and Labrador child benefit that applies for a qualified dependent of an eligible individual that is considered to have arisen during a month in relation to which the year is the base taxation year is the amount of NLCB, if it is positive, calculated according to the following formula:

NLCB = 1/12[(A+B+C+D)-E]

where:

           A =  $250 for the first qualified dependent

            B =  $326 for the second qualified dependent

            C =  $350 for the third qualified dependent

           D =  $375 times the number of qualified dependents in excess of 3; and

            E =  the benefit reduction calculated under section 6

Nutritional supplement benefit

        5. An eligible individual who receives on behalf of a qualified dependent the NLCB calculated in accordance with these regulations is entitled to receive, for the 11 month period effective the first of the month following the month during which birth occurred, a supplementary benefit of $45 a month.

Benefit reduction calculation

        6. Where the adjusted income of an eligible individual for a base taxation year, in relation to a month

             (a)  is less than or equal to $17,397, the benefit reduction “E” shall equal zero; and

             (b)  is greater than $17,397, the benefit reduction "E" shall be calculated by multiplying the difference between the adjusted income and $17,397 by

                      (i)  5.00% where there is one qualified dependent,

                     (ii)  11.52% where there are 2 qualified dependents,

                    (iii)  18.52% where there are 3 qualified dependents, and

                    (iv)  the total of 18.52%, and the product obtained by multiplying the number of qualified dependents in excess of 3 by 7.5%.

Repeal

        7. The Newfoundland and Labrador Child Benefit Regulations, 2004, Newfoundland and Labrador Regulation 42/04, are repealed.

Commencement

        8. These regulations are considered to have come into force on July 1, 2005.
