Food For Thought: A look into the effects of sugar
Vickie Dickson
By Vickie Dickson The devil looks like white powder and he is hiding in your cupboards. I’m not talking about cocaine, or any other street drug. What I’m talking about is sugar. AKA white death.

Howaida Sorour-Roberts

It was an interesting trip and one that opened my eyes to a few things that can be hard to gage at a distance.   As in what is happening on the ground in Egypt, what is the mood and how do they perceive ISIS. As it happens what I learned was very pertinent to [...]
The Family Tax Cut
Family Tax Cut, Smiths Falls
Steve Bennett Senior Tax Professional H&R Block Smiths Falls, ON The much-touted Family Tax Cut (FTC) has finally arrived! The announcement came very late in 2014, and the actual tax calculations were not revealed until CRA published the 2014 tax forms at the beginning of January. The FTC provides families with a non-refundable tax credit equal to the federal tax savings that would be generated by transferring up to $50,000 of taxable income from the higher-income spouse to the other.

Steve Bennett Senior Tax Professional H&R Block Smiths Falls, ON Last month, I discussed the Disability Tax Credit certificate at CRA and briefly mentioned that there are many tax breaks available to taxpayers with disabilities. I wanted to expand on one important program that is not very well advertised: the Registered Disability Savings Plan (RDSP). This account assists Canadians with disabilities with long-term savings. For those of you who are familiar with Registered Education Savings P[...]

Steve Bennett Senior Tax Professional H&R Block Smiths Falls, ON It’s not all that uncommon to hear stories from co-workers who write off their phone bills, home expenses, or even vet bills. Some of these may be eligible expenses, but many certainly are not. Unfortunately, these incorrect tax deductions can be perpetuated when CRA does not identify them immediately. Since Canada’s tax system is self-reporting, many of these errors can go on for years before the taxpayer is audited by CRA. At that point, the taxpayer will owe the tax difference plus interest, which can add up pretty qui[...]

After 29 years in politics, 15 of which were in the position of Mayor, Staples said leaving his role on council will be “an adjustment.” “Basically for last 15 years I’ve been getting up and going to town hall,” Staples said, adding he’s been mentally preparing for this transition since his announcement in January 2014. Staples said he’ll now have more time [...]
