Unedited CRA Tags
126(2)(a)

Principal Issues: Does the utilization of a carried forward non-capital loss reduce a taxpayer's qualifying income as defined in subsection 126(9)?

Position: No

Reasons: The "qualifying income" defined in subsection 126(9) refers to the income as opposed to taxable income. The carried forward losses are deductible from the taxable income (paragraph 111(1)(a)). Consequently, the foreign business income that must be considered in the calculation of the FTC is not reduced by carried forward non-capital losses.

15 September 2003 Internal T.I. 2003-00379570 - TAXATION OF INDIAN EMPLOYMENT

Unedited CRA Tags
81(1)(a)

Principal Issues: Was an Indian's employment income taxable?

Position: Question of Fact

Reasons:
General information provided. Very few details were provided with which to make a determination. We would have to assume that the individual is a status Indian since there is no confirmation of this fact. The memo indicates that the taxpayer does not live on reserve, that her employer was not resident on reserve and that approximately 30% of her duties were performed on reserve. The Proration Rule appears to apply to exempt 30% of her income.
