Tax Tips for Canadians.
Uncommon tax deductions and facts.
Here are some facts about uncommon tax deductions:
- The Tax Court decided a farmer was allowed to claim cat and dog food because they were outdoor pets meant to keep wildlife away from their blueberries. Dog food is also deductible if it is for a service dog.
- Lunch time supervision costs are considered child care expenses and can be claimed on your return. This also applies to before and after-school programs.
- Make sure you declare income from all sources - legal and illegal. If you fail to claim income earned illegally, you'll likely hear from the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) about unpaid income taxes and can possibly be convicted of a crime.
- If you attend school outside of Canada, the tuition should be tax deductible as long as the school is recognized by the CRA.
