#21 – It Depends…

June 25, 2017

This episode will save you money (and a tax audit).

A must listen if you own property, especially rental property.

This week I’m back with Chris Thompson – my friend, husband of Keith Roy and Associate’s team manager, Anna and former tax lawyer.

Stephanie and I went over to Chris and Anna’s for ice-cream last weekend and while we were there Chris and I talked about taxes (because clearly we know how to rock a Saturday night).

We bust out the tax code and break down the following:

  • Do you have to pay capital gains tax on your home when you sell if you had a rental suite in your house?
  • Do I need to report all rental income to CRA?
  • What’s my tax rate on my rental income?
  • What expenses can I write off if I have a rental property?
  • How long do I need to keep my tax records for?
  • If I move into my rental property for a year before I sell it, do I still have to pay capital gains tax?
  • Do I have to declare AirBnB income?
