Six Deduction the Taxman Doesn't Want You To Have

TaxmanIt’s interesting how what is not ok with family and social development, is perfectly fine with the law.

For example, it’s perfectly legal for a sibling to pay their brother or sister to do their chores. But I believe most parents would veto this idea, because although ok by law, it’s the principle that counts.

It’s clear that the law doesn’t always recognize that certain behaviours may be against other laws.

But while many may have considerable wealth tied up in their home, they tend to ignore the off-balance sheet liability when it comes to the costs of keeping it. Whether it’s rising hydro rates or property taxes that only trend upward, these unavoidable costs of living are destined to take significant bites out of fixed retirement budgets.
