Many business owners are fully aware of some of the common legal expenses, such as drafting a shareholder’s agreement, reviewing the contents of a lease agreement, reviewing an employment agreement, etc.  The list is extensive.  You might also know that these expenses are all deductible to the business.  The business gets the tax break. 

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. Take for example, while it’s illegal to marry more than one person in Canada, our law for tax purposes will allow you to treat more than one person as a spouse, if each meet the definition under the income tax act.

Lately, I have been posed with this question: do I have to pay taxes on the property that I inherit from my relative? Let’s take a look at this important question.

Is there an Inheritance Tax in Canada?

Canada does not have an estate inheritance or a death tax. In general, there are no taxes levied by CRA on the beneficiaries; without being brazen, when a person dies they leave the Canadian tax system. On death they are subjected to tax for the very last time and the estate pays any tax that is owed to the government.
