ASPER The authors of a non-profit trust fund aimed at encouraging parents to t.ave for their chil- dren's post-secondajy education breathed easier a few weeks ago as they won round two in a several year old battle with the revenue department. So did the Canadian parents who are subscribers to a unique known as Cana- dian Scholarship Trust.

Their chief Concerns were that only the children of the or those cademically gifted enough to eceive scholarships could hope in the future to afford a post- secondary in the face of dramatically escalating tui- aon costs. They conceived and launched he idea of a non-profit sslf-in- surance scheme designed to of- er a solution o a public social problem. The esult was the formation of Ca- nadian Scholarship This is how it works. The par- nt enrolls his child and pays a ertain sum per month into the und. The amount paid in de- sends upon the child's age and le approximate number of ears left before he's finished ugh school. These payments are deposited with a trust conv in the child's name. The irst is deducted to cover all administrative costs of the Ian. The trust company invests all money it receives and annually redits to each child's account je proportionate amount of in- erest he's earned on his depos- ts. However each child's parent signs an agreement with CST xroviding that his capital can DC withdrawn at any with- jut interest and if the child suc- cessfully completes his first year of post high school educa- for the next three he's entitled to scholar- ships. The amount of the scholar- ships for the next three years will be the total of his own capi- plus accumulated interest on plus his share of the f or- eited interest of those in his academic year who have with- drawn from the plan or failed to qualify for continued higher education. For those who are academi- cally inclined to it's an excellent plan. In the public it should be encour- aged because it reduces the re- liance of participating families on state assistance for post-sec- ondary education for their chil- dren. the sponsors of the plan have spared no efforts in trying to convince organized la- bor to include the plan as a fringe benefit for workers' chil- dren in collective bargaining contracts. So far there are about Canadian children enrolled in the plan. as with any good there's a tax problem. The problem relates to the in- terest being earned and ac- cumulated for future scholar- ships. Should it be taxed at since the trust fund is really for charitable educational and phi- lanthropic And if the annual interest should be tax- should it be taxed each year in the hands of the parent to whose child it is or should it be taxed in the hands of the or should it only be taxed when it is paid to a student as a Several years ago the tax de- partment took the position the annual interest should be taxed each year as though earned by the parent of the enrolled chil- dren. A rest case was taken to the tax review board. The tax court threw out the govern- ment's stating only that the income was in couldn't be attributed to anyone until it was actually allocated and paid out. wasn't taxable until someone actually received it. Unsatisfied with the the revenue officials appealed to the federal court where a few weeks former Saskatche- wan attorney-general Mr. Jus- tice Daryl Heald dismissed the government's case Rumour has it that the federal government intends to appeal again. If the bureaucrats are suc- cessful ill pressing their an economically sound and so- cially valuable plan could be the loss would far exceed any nominal tax rev- enue to be gained. There are several com- promises available in this situ- ation which was not con- templated by the income tax the government has lost its case and its should be enough to convince the offi- cials that an out of court legis- lative solution is warranted. The administration of the tax system should be sufficiently flexible to enable it to encour- not worthwhile plans even if they don't exactly fit the mould of the statute law.
