When did Valuation Day occur and are many people affected by it? A. There were actually two Valuation Days. When we speak of publicly-traded shares and securities, December 22, 1971, was Valuation Day and for all other properties the date of Valuation was December 31, 1971. Most taxpayers are not affected by Valuation Day since the most important property owned by them is not subject to tax on capital gains. In most cases this includes a taxpayer's 'home and personal effects vailued below $1,000. Q. Why was it necessary to have a Valuation Day at all? A. The purpose of Valuation Day was to ensure that no tax was assessed, or losses allowed, for any capital gain or loss which arose prior to January, 1972. Valuation Day was important only with regard to property acquired before January, 1972; there are no Valuation Day implications for property acquired on or after that date. It will be necessary to know the Valuation Day fair market value for any property owned on December 31. 1971, in order to determine the amount of taxable capital gain or allowable capital loss if that property were sold or disposed of after that date. Q. Is it necessary for taxpayers to report Valuation Day fair market values to the Income Tax Department? A. There is no requirement, for property owners to establish or report Valuation Day Receptionist-Cashier MEET THE PUBLIC Interesting work, Congenial eo-workerj.

However, it would be in the taxpayer's interest to determine Valuation Day values as early as possible since the passage of time can make it increasingly diffi-,'cult to do so. Q. Should a taxpayer establish a value upon his home? A. A pei-son's home is not subject to capital gains tax and need not be valued provided it is used only as a principal residence which means any type of structure you own and ordinarily inhabit. One exception to this rule would be where a home is used partly as a residence and the remaining part is either rented or used to car ry on a business.' In such cases, the home would not be completely exempt from capital gains tax when sold and it should, therefore, be valued. Q. What if I own certain works of art such as paintings or jewellery, or how should I treat personal items such as an automobile or a boat? Should these items be valued? A. Works of art such as prints, etchings, paintings, manuscripts, stamps, jewellery or coins are categorized as Listed Personal Property. If yon own any of these which is worth more than $1,000, either as a set or am individual item, you should establish its Valuation Day value. Certain items which you own chiefly for personal use or enjoyment, including all personal and household effects, automobiles, boats and similar items, are considered Personal Use Property. You need only establish Valuation Day values for personal-use property if it can be expected to increase in value and it is worth more than $1,000. In the vast majority of cases, personal - use property will not increase in value and will not give rise to a capital gain when sold nor will capital losses be allowed for this class of property. Q. How do you determine what gain or loss should be reported? A. The new legislation applicable to 1972 provides that gains and losses on assets held at the start of the system may be measured against either their actual cost or their values oh Valuation Day. Ford recalls '73 cars DETROIT (AP) - Ford Motor Co. has announced it is recalling about 82,000 standard-sized 1973-model automobiles in Canada and the United States to check for possible faultily-placed brake lines. A spokesman said Wednesday the front brake lines of some of the recalled vehicles m�y have been placed too close to the fender aprons. The insufficient clearance, he said, could permit the aprons to chafe the brake lines and wear them out, causing loss of front wheel braking and greatly increasing stopping distances. The spokesman estimated 25 per cent of the cars could require replacement of either or both of the front brake lines. Ford will pay for inspection and any replacement needed, he said. No accidents or injuries have been reported because of the defect, the spokesman added. Included in the recall were 76,340 units sod in the United States, 5,440 in Canada and 660 in Ford's export market. The firm also said 93 accessory trailer hitches are being recalled because of faulty design. A spokesman said under maximum loads the bitch could cause flexing of the bumper hangers and the sheet metal at the attaching point, resulting in the separation of bumper and hitch from the car. No such failures have been reported, he said. Ford will install replacement hitches of a new design, the spokesman said.
