3520-2: Last updated on 8/15/2011 2-16 a = employment b = business or property c = taxable capital gains/allowable capital losses d = other income (e.g. spousal support received, pension income) e = other deductions (e.g. RRSP contributions, moving expenses, spousal support paid, child care expenses) 2.3.2 Computation of Income ITA 3 See Fig 1-3 ITA 3 brings together all the different sources of income to form Net Income for Tax Purposes Taxable capital gain (TCG) = 1/2 of a capital gain Allowable capital loss (ACL) = 1/2 of a capital loss One key point in ITA 3 is that if allowable capital losses are greater than taxable capital gains, they cannot be deducted in computing net income (i.e., they are set equal to 0 for the year) Excess ACLs are available for deduction in other years (“carried over"). They can be carried back to the preceding three years and deducted against TCGs in those years (if any) and/or carried forward indefinitely and deducted against future TCGs. If not deducted before death, they can be deducted in the year of death (and the immediately preceding year) against any type of income See Example 1-125 3 Income or Loss from Employment [ch. 3] 3.1
