On Friday December 11, the Federal Minister of Finance introduced legislation for the following income tax measures to take effect on January 1, 2016:

  • Reduction of the 22% Federal personal income tax rate to 20.5%. The effect lowers the average combined Ontario and Federal tax rate from 31.15% down to 29.65% for approximate incomes of $45,000 to $73,000
  • Creation of a new Federal income tax rate of 33% for income in excess of $200,000. Therefore the highest combined rates for individuals and trusts  (other than graduated rate estates) is 53.3% in Ontario
  • Lowered the Tax-Free Savings Account (TFSA) contribution limit from $10,000 to $5500
  • Increased the refundable taxes on investment income earned in a private corporation by an additional 4%. The refundable tax is a prepayment of tax that is recoverable when the company pays a dividend to a shareholder
  • Increased the refundable taxes on portfolio dividends earned in a private corporation by an additional 5%

Please feel free to contact your Tax Advisor to discuss any questions or tax planning opportunities that may apply to your situation.
