Income Tax Act

Version of section 74.1 from 2011-12-15 to 2017-10-13:

Marginal note:Transfers and loans to spouse or common-law partner
  •  (1) If an individual has transferred or lent property (otherwise than by an assignment of any portion of a retirement pension under section 65.1 of the Canada Pension Plan or a comparable provision of a provincial pension plan as defined in section 3 of that Act), either directly or indirectly, by means of a trust or by any other means whatever, to or for the benefit of a person who is the individual’s spouse or common-law partner or who has since become the individual’s spouse or common-law partner, any income or loss, as the case may be, of that person for a taxation year from the property or from property substituted therefor, that relates to the period in the year throughout which the individual is resident in Canada and that person is the individual’s spouse or common-law partner, is deemed to be income or a loss, as the case may be, of the individual for the year and not of that person.

  • Marginal note:Transfers and loans to minors

    (2) If an individual has transferred or lent property, either directly or indirectly, by means of a trust or by any other means whatever, to or for the benefit of a person who was under 18 years of age (other than an amount received in respect of that person either as a consequence of the operation of subsection 122.61(1) or under section 4 of the Universal Child Care Benefit Act) and who

    • (a) does not deal with the individual at arm’s length, or

    • (b) is the niece or nephew of the individual,

    any income or loss, as the case may be, of that person for a taxation year from the property or from property substituted for that property, that relates to the period in the taxation year throughout which the individual is resident in Canada, is deemed to be income or a loss, as the case may be, of the individual and not of that person unless that person has, before the end of the taxation year, attained the age of 18 years.

  • Marginal note:Repayment of existing indebtedness

    (3) For the purposes of subsections 74.1(1) and (2), where, at any time, an individual has lent or transferred property (in this subsection referred to as the “lent or transferred property”) either directly or indirectly, by means of a trust or by any other means whatever, to or for the benefit of a person, and the lent or transferred property or property substituted therefor is used

    • (a) to repay, in whole or in part, borrowed money with which other property was acquired, or

    • (b) to reduce an amount payable for other property,

    there shall be included in computing the income from the lent or transferred property, or from property substituted therefor, that is so used, that proportion of the income or loss, as the case may be, derived after that time from the other property or from property substituted therefor that the fair market value at that time of the lent or transferred property, or property substituted therefor, that is so used is of the cost to that person of the other property at the time of its acquisition, but for greater certainty nothing in this subsection shall affect the application of subsections 74.1(1) and (2) to any income or loss derived from the other property or from property substituted therefor.
