CFAA Tax Retreat Postponed from April 6

2020-07-09T14:00:25-04:00

CFAA Tax Retreat Postponed from April 6 Due to the concerns about the impact of travel and group gatherings on the spread of COVID-19, CFAA has decided to postpone the tax retreat scheduled for April 6 to an indefinite time in the future. CFAA will be in touch with those registered to make arrangements to refund or credit the fee to attend the retreat.

Proposed interest limitation rules could devastate rental housing By John Dickie, CFAA President In the two most recent issues of National Outlook, CFAA warned readers of the risk of an increase in the capital gains inclusion rate, based in part on the potential influence of the NDP. Now rental housing providers face a new, even more serious risk, from a different source.

The interest deductibility limitation proposal – a critical tax issue that may arise this fall

2020-07-09T10:55:13-04:00

The interest deductibility limitation proposal – a new, critical tax issue Besides the promise to review the capital gains inclusion rate, the Liberals made another tax promise in the October campaign that could have serious unintended consequences, detrimental to rental housing providers and renters. It now appears that a decision on any change to capital gains taxes is not imminent. However, unless the federal government reverses course, it is our understanding that a change to the interest deductibility rules will be announced in Budget 2020, which is likely to be tabled in March or early April. Explanation of the issue [...]
