OTTAWA, Dec. 13, 2017 /CNW/ - The CMA is disappointed that the federal government is moving ahead with income sprinklingchanges in light of today's report by the Standing Senate Committee on National Finance, which calls for the proposed changes to be withdrawn and a comprehensive review of the overall tax system to be undertaken.
The CMA remains very concerned
The CMA recommended a full exemption for spousal income and dividends for the new income sprinkling rules, recognizing that spouses/partners are integral to the risk and development of a business enterprise, including a medical practice. Additionally, the CMA expressed concerns on the subjectivity of the reasonability criteria and the administrative burden these would impose. The CMA is disappointed that those recommendations were not adopted.
The CMA and its members will continue to work with the Coalition for Small Business Tax Fairness to advance the perspectives of medical and business operators, and to explore options that can achieve our shared objectives of tax fairness.
Dr. Laurent MarcouxPresident
