Changes to tax reporting of house sales

Changements apportés à l’exigence de déclaration de l’ARC

Le 3 octobre 2016, le gouvernement canadien a changé la façon dont les contribuables doivent déclarer la vente de leur résidence principale.
Avant l’année d’imposition 2016, la vente de la résidence d’un contribuable ne devait pas être déclarée à l’Agence du revenu du Canada (ARC) pourvu qu’elle soit désignée comme étant la résidence principale du contribuable pour chaque année où il en était le propriétaire. Autrement dit, le fait de ne pas déclarer la vente de la résidence entraînait la désignation par défaut que la résidence était la résidence principale du contribuable, et ainsi tout gain en capital réalisé sur la vente était libre d’impôt.
À compter de l’année d’imposition 2016, la disposition de TOUTE résidence (incluant la résidence principale d’un contribuable) doit être déclarée afin que le gain résultant de cette disposition soit non imposable. En d’autres termes, un contribuable doit déclarer la disposition de sa résidence principale à l’ARC, sinon cette disposition pourrait déclencher un gain en capital imposable. Ainsi, la présomption ne sera plus en faveur du contribuable.
Il convient de noter qu’il s’agit davantage d’un changement apporté à l’exigence de déclaration plutôt qu’un changement au traitement fiscal. Tant que la documentation est produite avec précision et en temps utile, les contribuables seront à l’abri des effets de ce changement procédural.
L’ARC centrera ses efforts sur la communication de ce changement au secteur immobilier et aux contribuables afin que tout le monde soit au courant des nouvelles obligations en matière de déclaration. Dans les pires cas de production tardive d’une désignation de résidence principale, l’ARC se réserve le droit d’imposer une pénalité de 100 $ par mois ou 8 000 $, selon le plus élevé de ces montants.

You and Jay did everything we asked for and more, and talked me off the ledge more than once. We were so impressed, and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to others.

Pamela & Doug

Thank you for a job well done. We’re both so excited to have clinched the deal of the year in Beaconsfield.

Denise & Gary

Merci beaucoup Nancy pour ton dévouement et ta patience. Nous sommes très heureux d'avoir fait cette très belle acquisition!

Carl

We realized that we were dealing with a real estate “advisor” - who not only knows the local market and homeowners themselves, but an individual that thinks outside the box and brings creativity and enthusiasm to a profession that he truly loves.

Mark & Kelly

Thanks for treating us like family!

The Halls

We would like to thank you so much for all your hard work in finding our first home. Your patience, professionalism, friendship and perseverance was greatly appreciated.

Marc-Andre Legault - Developer - Les Cours Sherbrooke

Thank you once again for guiding us through this process. Your ability to balance professionalism and the human aspect of this process is top drawer.

I was really worried about finding the "right" person to work with my Mom. Your approach, patience and sense of humour won her over right away, and your follow up has given all of us a lot of comfort through this. Jay, I could not imagine a better fit.

Michael

Nancy, thank you for all your help and invaluable guidance!

Katy & Kevin

I would not consider making a sale or purchase in the West Island without involving Deakin Realty

You thought of every detail inside and out - a job well done to you and your team!

Having such a well organized group looking after us made our house hunting trip all the easier…those added touches you do really make all the difference between ‘good’ and ‘the best’.

Laura & Daniel

Ali a été d’une aide précieuse pour nous trouver LA maison qui nous convenait, ainsi que pour nous aider à miser sur les atouts de notre maison pour la vendre au bon prix. Il est à l’écoute des besoins et est d’une grande intégrité.

Andre & Martine

Jay, you truly could not have handled this tricky sale better and we will sing your praises to everyone we know.
