Child care expenses are amounts incurred for the purpose of providing child care services for an eligible child. Eligible expenses can include babysittingnursery day care or camp or boarding school.

TAX TIP           There are special “attribution rules” when you transfer capital property to your spouse or common-law-partner. Normally the property is deemed to have been disposed of at your ACB adjusted cost base. That property is also deemed to be acquired by your spouse at the same amount. However, instead you can make a special election to do this transfer to your spouse at FMV fair market value. If you do not make the special election, you will not have a capital gain from the “sale” of the property to your spouse. To avoid nasty surprises when you transfer property to your spouse or common-law-partner, please contact us.
