WHERE CAN I LEARN ABOUT PENSION-SPLITTING?
The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) permits pension splitting for eligible taxpayers. Some of the Association's members have availed themselves of the benefits of pension-splitting and have realized a considerable saving on their income taxes.
In some instances, by choosing pension-splitting, persons have received a REFUND on previous years' taxes. Note carefully: this is not an automatic benefit – you must apply for it.
The Canada Revenue Agency has extensive information of interest to seniors; visit their Seniors' Topics page here
