DO NOT buy in a corporation

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Condos Plus Corporation, Brokerage

A TAX TIP: When buying ‘rental properties' as an investor DO NOT buy in a corporation, that is set-up solely for the purpose of buying and selling properties as an investment. The ‘net rent' (is passive income) and capital gains are taxed at a punitive rate of 46%. Then, there is 15% on dividends in the Personal Return.

Also, it is preferable for spouses to buy the property jointly and file rental statements as co-owners to income-split the net rent and capital gain on sale; thus saving the amount of tax payable.
