Canadian Tax Principles

Consistent with the title of this textbook, the objective is to instill a solid understanding of the basics of income tax and GST/HST through an appreciation of the tax principles, concepts, and unique vocabulary that make up the framework upon which the Canadian tax system has been built. This level of understanding is not solely directed at a theoretical or academic level; considerable emphasis is placed on practical everyday situations in preparation for careers where an understanding of tax in some form will be helpful at a minimum and essential at best.


Gary Donell: A senior advanced tax trainer with the Canada Revenue Agency, Donell did a technical review of significant portions of the text and problems. His suggestions contributed greatly to the accuracy and clarity of the material. In addition, he was responsible for writing much of the Chapter 18 material on partnerships and the Chapter 20 material on international taxation. Mr. Donell has undertaken this work independently of his employment with the CRA.
