NIFTP to Taxable Income • The deductions from NIFTP that are available to Corporations are some what different from those available to individuals: – Charitable donations are a deduction for corporations, subject to a limit of 75% of NIFTP, and a 5 year carry forward for unused donations. – Dividends are not grossed up when received by corporations, and in fact are deductible from NIFTP if they are received from a Taxable Canadian Corporation (they were already taxed in the hands of the payor corporation). – Losses are deductible, basically in the same way as for individuals, except if the corporation has been subject to a change in control (covered in MOS4462) Complete Exercise Twelve-1 on pg. 558 and Self Study Problem Twelve-1 on pg. 589
