The Finance Minister’s 2013 Federal Budget Tax Measures were just announced on Thursday March 21st. For owner-operated facilities, there are several provisions in the budget that may be of particular interest. It is proposed that the life-time capital gains exemption be increased, which will have the effect of increasing the amount of potential tax-free proceeds that may be received on sale of a business or property. On the other hand, the proposal to change the taxation of dividends may result in increased cost in distributing profits to individual owners.
