All Canadians are affected by taxes.  Whether through income tax, through everyday purchases or simply by owning a home.  Paying taxes are inevitable.  However, there are many strategies available to Canadians that can help them reduce the taxes they pay.

Taxes are collected in many forms;

  • Income Tax such as personal and corporate taxes
  • Consumption taxes such as sales taxes
  • Wealth taxes such as property and estate taxes
Tax planning involves using strategies that accomplish two main goals;

  • Paying as little tax as legally possible
  • Deferring as much tax as possible.
Vehicles used for tax planning strategies;

  • TFSAs (Tax Free Saving Account)
  • RRSPs (Registered Retirement Saving Account)
  • RDSPs (Registered Disability Savings Plan)
  • RESPs (Registered Education Savings Plan)
  • Charitable Donations

 Filing your income taxes is not tax planning.  At filling time, you have lost most of the control over the outcome.   Tax planning is an ongoing process.  It encompasses many choices as well as strategies. The amount of income you earn, the investment decisions you make, the available credits and deductions available to you are just some of the factures that contribute to a very complex tax system in Canada.  With the multitude of rules and the changes that come about every year to our tax system, it is very easy to confuse, overlook or miss a strategy altogether.  It is advisable to seek professional help to make sure you are taking advantage of all possible tax strategies.

Tax planning is all about keeping more of your money.
