Tax Planning Strategies
Tax Tips For Investors
Knowing how the tax rules affect your investments is essential. Tax strategies that you should consider such as income splitting, charitable giving and estate planning.
New Federal Income Tax Changes
In December 2015, the federal Liberal government tabled legislation to introduce tax initiatives from their election platform to take effect on January 1, 2016. While the legislation has not yet received Royal Assent, it is expected that these measures will formally be enacted into law shortly.
Tax-Free Savings Account
The Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA) is a savings plan that allows Canadians to invest and earn tax-free returns. Any income (interest, dividends, and capital gains) earned is tax-free.
How Investment Income is Taxed
When it comes to investment income, all is not equal after tax. Knowing how tax rules affect your investments is essential in order to maximize your after tax return.

Eligible Dividends
Given the changes in the taxation of dividend income over the last few years, you should revisit the taxation of all investment income, including interest, dividends and capital gains. If you compare the different tax rates on these sources of investment income, it’s clear that not all investment income is equal on an after-tax basis. However, even tax-conscious investors may not appreciate how changes to the taxation of eligible dividends may impact their after-tax returns.

Federal Budget Review
On March 22, Finance Minister Bill Morneau unveiled the new Liberal government’s first Federal Budget entitled “Growing the Middle Class” which continues with many of the themes outlined in the Liberal election platform and the income tax measures introduced last December. The Budget anticipates a deficit of $5.4 billion for fiscal 2015-16 and forecasts a deficit of $29.4 billion for 2016-17.
Unique Challenges Women Face in Retirement
Research shows that gender strongly influences the path women and men take to plan their retirement. While retirement is typically presented as a “couple” experience—a stage of life that men and women share with their partners—the reality is that retirement is very often lived alone, whether by choice or as the result of divorce or the death of your spouse.
