Two quarterly newsletters have been added—one about personal issues, and one about corporate issues.


Canadian taxpayers don’t need a calendar to know that the registered retirement savings plan (RRSP) contribution deadline is approaching—the glut of television, radio, and internet ads which fill the airwaves and computer screens this time of year are reminder enough. And, while RRSP planning and retirement planning generally are best approached as an ongoing, year-round activity, it is true that an imminent deadline tends to focus the minds of taxpayers on such issues.


The announcement of a change in our tax laws to permit income splitting within families in order to reduce the overall family tax burden has received a lot of attention in the media of late. What’s not as well known is the fact that older Canadian taxpayers have in fact been able for several years to benefit from a similar income splitting strategy. Generally speaking, the opportunity to split pension income is available to couples who are 65 and over, and are receiving income from either RRSP/RRIF savings or from an employer-sponsored pension plan.


The early months of the new calendar year can feel like a never-ending series of bills and other financial obligations. Credit card bills from holiday spending, or perhaps a mid-winter vacation, are due or coming due. The RRSP deadline of March 2, 2015 is approaching, and the April 30, 2015 deadline for payment of 2014 taxes owed is not far behind.


As everyone knows—even those who aren’t parents—raising children is expensive. Even though basic needs like education and health care are publicly funded, there is still a never-ending list of discretionary and non-discretionary costs to be paid.
