That was the message de- vered by the Tax Appeal oard recently in two separate ases heard by Appeal Board lember Maurice Boisvert, Q.C. oth cases dealt with holiday .rips given to or won by em- loyees, and had the result of ampening their memories of ther wise pleasurable vaca- ions. These two tax cases and icir result should be commu- nicated by employers to all of heir employees who may be n similar circumstances. The first case dealt with a district sales manager for SUi- lebaker cars. The company ponsored a contest in which hose who achieved'certain ales quotas would qualify for an expense free trip to the iahamas, {or them and then- wives. The day before the tour was o leave, this particular sales manager was advised that his .argets had been met and he and his wife qualified to go. Since it was the Christmas sea- son, they were unprepared as Jiey had made other plans for ie holidays.

Open High Low Close Mar 32.50N May 32.50 32.50B Jly _______________31.75 Ration gasoline LONDON (AP) Service sta- tions in southeast England began rationing gasoline to mo- torists Wednesday because of a wildcat strike of delivery driv- ers. ute they decided to accept the award. As is usual with many of these "expense paid" trips, the amounts paid rarely cover the employee's actual out-of-pocket costs. In this case, the sales manager spent about more than the studebaker allow- ed him. On the way back from Nassau he tried to mix a little business with pleaure and con- tacted a former sales man in New Jersey in to per- suade him to return to Canada and resume work as a com- pany salesman. When the Tax Assessors dis- covered the situation a few years later, they claimed that the valus of the trip, the paid by the company, was tax- able income because it was re- ceived as a non cash benefit given by an employer to an employee as compensation for his services. The tax law clearly provides for this, although there are many employees, as well as who don't realize it When the taxpayer objected, the case came to trial where Mr. Boisvert ruled that one- third of the company's contri- bution to the trip could be class ified as a business expense be- of the negotiations the employee had undertaken will the New Jersey salesman. Bu the remaining plus paid by the company toward the cos of the trip was ruled to be tax able as part of the employee' income derived from his job. There's little doubt that to Appeal Board's interpretatioi of the law is correct, but tha is little comfort to the em ployee who put out of his own money plus the tax on th rest hi order to take a trip h wasn't keen about in the firs place The second case was on a si lilar point. There, the employee worked or a brewing company in Hali- ax. The company engaged an agency to promote .s sales using television and newspapers as the main media, n 1967 the television station sponsored a trip to Spain and, as a gesture of goodwill toward ts own customers, gave away ree travel tickets to key ad- vertisers. The brewery company was given two tickets, worth Since they were received in appreciation of advertising bus- ness given by the company, he sales manager was offered them. He declined. Rather than et them go to waste, the com- pany secretary said he'd use hem and off he and his wife went to Spain. The strains of flamenco gui- :ars had barely subsided when :he revenue officers arrived ilaying a different tune. The Tax Department took the position that under the law an employee must pay income tax on everything he receives fron his employment, whether paid in cash or otherwise, and whe- ther or not it is regular salary or bonus, or a windfall gratuity The employee argued that the two tickets for the tour were purely an unexpected gift, vhich he had no expectation of and their valus should not be construed as in- come from his job. Acting Appeal Board Chair- man, Mr. Boisvert, had ne choice but to reluctantly apply the law as it is written, and which specifically provides that an employee must pay tax even en unexpected and un- earned "gratuities" or gifts (i.e. tips) which come to him as a result of his job. That the law was properly applied in both these cases is not doubted. But what these de- cisions point up is the fact that employees often accept these prizes with some reluctance and then are surprised and dis- couraged by the tax result. In many cases they might decline the "prize" which generally costs them extra money to en- joy, if they knew in advance their tax position. It would be helpful for the morale of both employers and employees if companies would circulate this information to their employees before the next batch of Christmas turkeys are distributed.
