Tax on Split Income | Tip 5

The voting control of your private corporation might have been recommended for tax and non-tax reasons.

Now is the time to revisit the voting rights of your shares as giving up a portion of them may be the key to avoid the TOSI rules and allow dividend sprinkling with certain family members.

Please contact SB Partners to learn more, or to discuss any of our signature TOSI Solutions.
