Talking Tax

Over the holidays, I discovered a television show on Report on Business TV which has some pretty good tax information. Talking Tax airs twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursday mornings at 11:30am. The half hour show invites a tax expert every day to answer emails and telephone calls from the public.

Various topics are discussed ranging from very basic to intermediate tax issues. Here are a few of the topics discussed over the past week:
- Automobile expenses and what documentation you need to claim them
- When to claim income on option writing and how options are taxed
- Pension splitting for seniors
- Various RRSP contributions questions
- Travel medical expense as an allowable credit

Since the personal tax season is creeping up on us all, it might help you out if you've got a tax question. You can email them at or call them at 1-877-667-6288 or locally at 416-957-8199. You can find the archives for the past couple of weeks here
