what is my 2014 tax brackets ?

We often get question from our clients: “what is my 2014 tax brackets?”

In Canada, we have marginal tax rate applicable to individual tax payers. This means the higher income you have you will have to pay more taxes. While filing your 2014 tax return, many of the low income earning families won’t pay any taxes up to an income of $26,786, versus a higher income family would pay 42.18% of taxes in Ontario. Therefore, medium to high income earning families such as dentists, doctors, professional engineers, IT consultants etc. in Canada especially in Ontario should take the opportunity of tax planning. Planning your taxes reminds me an old saying: “Prevention is better than cure”. If you wait till the last moment (at filing your tax returns), there are very few things you can do to minimize of defer your tax burden. Whereas taking the correct steps on time would give you the peace of mind of staying on top. To learn more about the tax planning in Canada, you may contact Mostafa Mohsin CPA, CGA | Chartered Professional Accountant expert in owner managed business and high income earners tax planning in Ontario and most of other provinces and territories in Canada.
