Tax Tips

Family Tax Cut

Allows a higher income spouse to effectively transfer up to $50,000 of taxable income to a spouse in a lower income tax bracket. This results in a maximum non-refundable credit of $2,000. To be eligible for this credit, both spouses must file tax returns and must have a child under 18 years of age living with at least one of the eligible spouses. Either spouse may claim the credit in their return, but the credit cannot be split. This credit is being repealed.

Fitness Tax Credit

Expenses eligible for this credit doubled from $500 to $1,000 per child ($1,000*15%=$150). An additional $500 is still available for a child with a disability, but only if the total eligible fitness costs are $100 or more.

Safety Deposit Box Deduction

It is no longer possible to claim a deduction for safety deposit boxes.

GST/HST Credit

Individuals no longer need to apply for GST/HST credits in their tax returns. The qualification is automatically determined by CRA.


Pro Tip


The Small Business Deduction gives businesses a tax deduction on the first $500,000 of income. This saves an eligible corporation around up to $50,000 in income taxes. There are a number of conditions that have to be met to be eligible for this deduction.


Sam Faris reduced the significant unreported income based on net worth audit to be nil. Sam’s approach in fighting these types of complex audits is unique and sophisticated. He found countless mistakes made by the auditor which were rectified when Sam appealed the audit decision. Instead of owing significant amount of taxes, Sam reduced it to zero. I highly recommend to hire Sam for this type of audits and any CRA problem.”
