Post-Election Commentary 2015

We now have a new majority Liberal Government and they have promised to change the TFSA rules by decreasing the annual contribution room from $10,000 back to $5,500. If you do not have a TFSA, you are missing out on tax free capital gains, tax free dividend income and tax free interest income. Every investment you can make in your RSP can be made in your TFSA only you don’t pay tax on your withdrawals, it does not impact other income and for seniors it will not result in claw backs to your pension income.

If you have a TFSA at a bank collecting low, low interest, then you are squandering this wealth building tool. Prepare to take advantage of the annual $10,000 TFSA contribution before it is gone.

Simply put — max out your contributions before it is too late.
