Sheaffer with this in mind the commit tee in its report prepared for presentation to the House of commons next week proposes several major changes in the White paper provisions for the taxation of capital gains. Of interest to the average Ca Nadian is the committee s conclusion that the idea of taxing capital gain realized on the Sale of the family Home be rejected. The draft report finds a Gen eral and Strong opposition to the suggestion of taxing gains on the Sale of residences. This is not confined to Canada it said. It pointed out that in Britain the profit on Sale of an Only or main residence is not subject to capital gains tax. The com Mittee after examining various alternatives suggests that a gain or loss on the Sale of a principle residence along with he land surrounding it up to one acre not be taken into account for tax purposes. The committee also proposes hat personal property be tax exempt except where the item Ost More than the White paper had suggested a 5500 exemption level. The committee report recommended that Only one half the capital gains in the Sale of shares of both closely and widely held corporations be taxed j and one half the losses be de i duct blk. The White paper Sug where you alone select the Cost that v. I tested that gains be fully taxed and losses fully deductible for closely held corporations. For widely held corporations it pro posed one half the Gams would i be taxable and one half the losses deductible. I the committee recommended that the five year revaluation of the value of the assets at a Given Day to be known As valuation Day or the com Mittee suggested that the value of an asset on a Day should be the higher of Cost or Market where a gain is involved and the lower of the two figures ethere a loss had taken place. This would be to the Benefit of the taxpayer. The committee suggested that profits from investments other than shares should be fully taxed and losses fully deductible. However it does not accept the suggestion that if the Origi Nal Cost exceeded the value on a Day such Cost could be Reco Vered without being treated As income. All assets should be treated alike the committee said. Small businesses should be assisted under the country s tax setup the committee concluded. At present companies pay corporate income tax at a rate of 21 per cent on the first of income and 50 per cent on the rest. The White paper would wipe out the lower rate. This came in for a lot of criticism before the committee. However the committee is inclined to go along with the idea of abolishing the lower rate. It found that the weakness in the Low rate was that it was Avail Able to Small businesses whether or not the tax saved is used in the business. It recognized the importance of helping Small business find capital but pointed out there was no Check j j on whether the tax saved under the lower rate was used for this purpose. The committee recommended that Relief be provided for companies with a taxable in widely held corporation shares come up to after that be dropped.
