TELEPHONE 328-7883 Thunday, August 6, 1970 THE UTHBRIDGE HERALD 13 Your Taxes Shedding Light On Dark Tax Corner By I. H. ASPER One of ttie most important and welcome development in the administration of the tax system in recent years is the Department National Rev enue's more frequent release of information bulletins. An information bulletin normally a statement of the Tax Division's policy regard ing its interpretation of the law or its policy of enforcing it in given situations. These bulle- tins don't have the force of law but are merely guidelines and as such are valuable to tax- payers and their advisers in charting their course through complex or-grey areas of the law. Even though the Depart- ment's bulletins aren't binding on anyone, including the Gov- ernment, the periodic issue of hese policy statemnts pre- vents unnecessary litigation and dispute between taxpayer and tax collector, because whether they are valid or not, "ew tax advisers would recom- nsnd a course of action which lies in the face of a Tax De- >artment contrary view. Since Canada still does not lave a system whereby one can obtain a tax ruling or in- erpretation from Government n advance of his proposed ransaction, the Tax Depart- ment's information bulletin sys- em is the next best thing. Un- il complete tax reform, includ- ng an advance ruling system, is introduced, Ottawa should be encouraged to increase the fre- quency and bfpaden the scope of these policy statements. Much tax uncertainty would thus be removed from commer- cial or family business trans- actions. The Tax Division's current policy release is an example of the system working at its best. Information Bulletin No. 47 deals with the Department's at- titude in situations where one sells someething to a close rela- tive, say his child, but does not get paid immediately. Instead be takes a Promissory Note for the full entire purchase price but because of the relation- ship, the Note calls for no in- terest to be paid. There's the potential tax rub. This type of situation arises every day across Canada. The father, as part of his estate planning, sells the shares of flie family business to his sons of to a family holding company; or he sells the 'farm, cottage, life insurance policy, invest- ment portfolio, or what have you. The children rarely have the cash with which to pay and in- terest costs would compound their inability to take over the family assets. As well, paying the interest costs on the he is foregoing income and hi effect, making a gift tc purchase price would son each year equal to the different tax problems. of interest the son as part of the estate have paid if he had owec process, the father will money to a bank. tax-free gifts to his could be quite expen- each year by forgiving part tax-wise.

COUNCIL GETS CLASSES OTTAWA (CP) A AUTO HOME ederal grant to the Velfare Council, for its 3rd FflRSTER ies in the field of housing, announced there can be no adverse tax consequences to him. The issue has been satisfac- torily resolved without litiga- tion by Ihe issuing of Informa- tion Bulletin No. 47. The Tax Department's proposed solution is that where the money owing by the son is payable on de- mand, then there will be no gift tax assessed in respect of Ihe fact that the debt bears no interest. H the Promissory Note bears no interest, but also is not repayable for a stated number of years then the De- partment proposes to calculate the present value of such a non-interest bearing long term Note and then assess gift tax against the father en the differ- ence between the face value of the Note and its market value. In ether words, a note for payable without inter- est in twenty years might be worth only Thus the difference of would be treated as a taxable gift. Whether or not the Courts would uphold the Tax Depart- ment's compromise solution, of in fact render an even harsher verdict, is something that per- haps some venturesome tax- payer might one day test. In the meantime, the Tax Depart- ment's i n f o r m a tion bulletin goes a long distance toward comprising tax opinions, re- stores tax certainty to a cloudy region of tax practice and in- dicates a reasonable approach to thorny tax issues all of which can only improve tax- payer morale.
