    I am a Canadian citizen, residing and pays tax in Canada.
    I work for a consulting company that services both clients in US and Canada. It is on commission basis.
    The company now is telling me that they will pay in in US$ for US clients that I service from this time on, which I don’t mind. However, how does the filing of taxes works?
    Before, they send me a T-4 for commission I received in Canadian dollars. Now, what forms they are suppose to send me, so that I can file my tax accordingly?
    Looking forward to hearing from you.

  2. Hi MJ,

    This is a question you should be posing to your employer.

    They may issue you a Canadian T4 or they may require you to obtain an US ITIN (tax number) and will require you to file an US tax return,

    Best to get a handle on this before year end so you are not surprised.

    I hope this has answered your question.

    I am on your site… I am trying to find what the off the top tax rate is for 20$ per hour @ 40 hours per week.

    In advance, thank you.

  4. Hi Patrick,

    The calculator above determines ANNUAL tax liability.

    So, in your case, multiply your $20 x 40 x 52 weeks to get your annual taxable income and enter it in the calculator above.

    The result will be your annual tax liability rate.

    To reduce it to your weekly rate, divide the amount by 52 weeks.

    I hope this has answered your question.

    I recently moved to BC on October 20th, and started a new full-time permanent job. Previously, I was self employed in Quebec, for 9 months. I did not file for taxes from Quebec, nor did I have registration as self employed while I was working in Quebec.

    Now, I am unsure from where do I file my taxes at the end of the year. Do I pay taxes to Quebec because I used to work and reside there for 9 months? How do I process my tax application in BC now ?


  6. Hi Sayem,

    Very good question!

    Provincial tax residency is not as clear cut as it appears on the T1 tax return.

    Quebec follows a more restricted manner of determining residency than other provinces and strictly enforces this.

    As you lived in Quebec for nine months, you are a resident for tax purposes to Quebec for all world income earned during this time.

    As for filing your tax return, you may have different options… you must file a Quebec Tax Return for the Quebec income; you must file a Federal T1 to report your total world-wide income for 2014, but you also have the opportunity to either report the BC income on the BC tax return or as Quebec income on the Quebec tax return.

    We recommend you seek the services of a professional tax preparer with the knowledge and experie3nce of inter-provincial tax reporting requirements to reduce your tax liability.

    I hope this has answered your question.

    My elderly father put many of his stock purchase receipts in the shredder to forget about the thousands he lost in the stock market over the years. It was an unfortunate mistake in a moment of utter despair. This year he actually has capital gains, and he would like to dispose of some of those near-worthless investments to offset the gains. Since he no longer has the purchase slips to prove how much he paid, can he instead provide the CRA with brokerage statements showing the book value of the investments ?
    Thanks in advance for your reply.

  8. Hi Bill,

    Your dad’s primary issue is not with the CRA as the purchase price should be readily available from the broker’s statement or historical records, but actually with the broker… depending upon the stock owned, you may require the certificates to sell the stock, unless the certificates have no value recorded on the broker’s statement.

    Be sure to claim every potential cent in capital loss to cover current and future gains, but also because capital losses can be claimed against any income on your dad’s Final tax return (a much desired break for his estate).

    I hope this has answered your question.
