Helps clubs TURIN (HNS) Fifteen persons, members of six clubs, attended a recreational rreet- ing here recently. Miss Wendy Rassmussen, recreational director for the north half of the county, was in attendance. She helped the clubs prepare briefs for capital grants. Tony Horrnotli, Turin recrca- Uonal director, was chairman, Here's a perfectly legal way to use the Government's own rules to save on income tax. The Government has a law that says in effect "If you save now for your retirement, we'll let you pay as much as into a regis- tered retirement savings plan every year, and we'll let you knock it off your income." So you merely lower taxable income by putting up to in our registered retirement savings plan and don't pay the tax on it. Say you're married, have two children and earned fifteen thou- sand in 1970. Depending on the province you live in, your tax saving could amount to which is a bundle in any man's language. To top it all off, the money you save can make more money. Essentially there are four ways you can do this. You can have us invest it in stocks. You can have us invest it for a guaranteed rale of interest. You can have us in- vest it in income producing bonds and mortgages. Or you can divide your money up using any combin- ation of these three alternatives. The beauty of it is: Yon can actually control the combination as your needs change over tie years. For instance you could invest in stocks for several years, for long term-growth. And then as you get closer to retirement, you might want to switch to a guaran- teed interest rate. You can change your combi- nation again and again. This means your plans are flexible at all times. And you can get your money out when you want it. When you eventually choose to withdraw it, you have to pay taxes on it at that time, of course. Butthisiswhat'smost important. You pay tax on your money when you decide to pay it. This means later, when you're likely in a lower tax bracket. This has led some to call Shis plan a tax shelter. One fellow we know plans to pay into it for several years, watch it grow, then take it out to replace normal income while he lazes in Majorca. But let's face it, the real benefit comes from leaving it in till you retire. It's especially valuable because we don't have a lot of salesmen out making calls, therefore you don't have to pay sales commis- sions. All you have to do is call us. But don't put it off. You can't deduct any deposits from your 1970 income lax after Monday, March 1st. So fight fire with fire. Make the rules work for you. Phone us now I Canada Trust 3rd Ave. at 7th St. S. 327-8581 ;
