Thanks so far for the nice comments.

Anyone have any feedback on the content? Is there anything you’d like to see?

Better than reading the phone book size Canada Tax Act!

Tax Admin March 1, 2009 at 1:05 am

@ Donald
The Tax Act is my favorite book! It’s almost as much fun as reading CRA interpretation bulletins.

Deborah D. March 1, 2009 at 4:00 pm

Just found this site. I do taxes for all my friends and elatives for free, so this book would come in handy. I have an older copy of the Income Tax Act that I have been using. I will also be coming back to this site once i get all my tax receipts in order.

Tax Admin March 1, 2009 at 4:09 pm

@ Deborah

Did you complete the poll at the top of the page too?

TL March 1, 2009 at 6:10 pm

I’d love to win this book! thx!

Tracey March 1, 2009 at 7:32 pm

First time visiting. Am going to check out the site as I could use all the help I could get!

Ronald Z March 1, 2009 at 7:52 pm

I just started up a small home-based business so I could really use this.

Travis March 1, 2009 at 8:23 pm

Hi there!

I’m an accounting student who is very much interested by taxes and would love to learn more about the rules, regulations, and tax planning strategies involved in this specific area of accounting.

Please add my name to the draw – thank you very much!!

Travis March 1, 2009 at 8:28 pm

By the way, I will be using Ufile to file my taxes this year, last year I used Quicktax, but I think ufile is more cost effective, so I am making the switch over.

Plus, Ufile seems to include more features which may benefit my father who runs a sole proprietorship, because of certain deductions etc… Also, thanks for including an “onine calculators” section on your blog. I am sure it will be of much use to my family and I.

Lorraine March 1, 2009 at 8:31 pm

Since my dad passed away, I have been taking care of my elderly mother’s finances. My father took very good care of her with various investment vehicles both here in Canada and in the U.S. (where he worked). My father never told us what he had or explained anything before he died. I find it a daunting task and am always afraid I’m going to jam my mom up financially because finances are not my area of expertise, by far. I try to read articles online, but I really need a good book that puts it all in one place, incluing terminolgy. I’ve looked at bookstores, but again, the number of books on family financial planning is very lare and I don’t know which are actually helpful and which aren’t. So that is why I would love to win this book. My mom is the most important part of my life and I just so need to do right by her finances. And I know my dad would hope I would.

Thank you,

Lorraine Maroon

@ Lorraine

Being executor or helping with these matters can be difficult. You might want to meet with some professional investment advisors to make investment recommendations. In addition, you should consider hiring an independent financial planner (CFP).

Using professionals will insure your mothers finances are adequately cared for.

There are few books to help if you are not comfortable with the subject.

Travis March 1, 2009 at 8:50 pm

@ Tax Admin

The Income Tax Act is interesting and informative, but definitely not an easy read, especially in an exam setting… The CRA IT bulletins are quite clear and to-the-point, but I’d much read a textbook such as “Canadian Tax Principles” by Byrd & Chen

Tax Admin March 1, 2009 at 9:00 pm

@ Travis,

“Canadian Tax Principles” by Byrd & Chen got me through CGA TX1 & TX2

Thomas March 1, 2009 at 10:19 pm
