      • (i) that was described by paragraph 18(1)(m) and was paid or payable by the recipient, or

    • (a) if the taxpayer was in existence at the time the original amount became receivable by a person referred to in subparagraph 12(1)(o)(i) or became payable to a person referred to in subparagraph 18(1)(m)(i), as if the specified amount were paid by the taxpayer at that time; and

    • (b) in any other case, as if

    (5) A specified amount paid by the taxpayer to a partnership is deemed to have been paid on the last day of a particular taxation year of the taxpayer, and not at the time it was paid, if

    • (b) the initial payment was paid before September 17, 2004;

    • (c) the initial payment is an amount to which subsection (3) did not apply because of subsection (4);

    • (d) the taxpayer’s share of the original amount in respect of the initial payment is greater than the initial payment;

    • (e) the specified amount is equal to or less than the difference between the taxpayer’s share of the original amount in respect of the initial payment and the initial payment;

    • (f) the taxpayer elects in the taxpayer’s return of income for the taxpayer’s taxation year that includes the time at which the specified amount would, if this Act were read without reference to this subsection, have been paid, to have this subsection apply to the specified amount; and

  • Marginal note:Interpretation — portion of the original amount

    (7) For the purpose of subsection (6), the portion of the original amount that was included in computing the income of the recipient or that was not deductible in computing the income of the recipient is the amount that would be included in computing the income of the recipient under paragraph 12(1)(o) or that would not be deductible in computing the income of the recipient under paragraph 18(1)(m), if the original amount were equal to the eligible portion of the specified amount.
