Under the Tax Proposals, where a Limited Partner disposes of all of its Units in a fiscal period of the Partnership, any income or loss allocated to the Limited Partner for such fiscal period will be taken into account in determining the adjusted cost base of the Limited Partner’s Units. One-half of a capital gain realized by a Limited Partner must be included in the Limited Partner’s income as a taxable capital gain. The full amount of a capital gain realized on the transfer of a Unit to a tax-exempt person may be included in the Limited Partner’s income as a taxable capital gain. One-half of a capital loss may be deducted by the Limited Partner as an allowable capital loss against taxable capital gains to the extent and under the circumstances prescribed in the Tax Act. Dissolution of the Partnership On dissolution of the Partnership, a Limited Partner will generally be considered to dispose of its Units for proceeds of disposition equal to the then fair market value of the property received by the Limited Partner on such dissolution. The Partnership will be deemed to dispose of such property for proceeds equal to its then fair market value and the Limited Partner will be deemed to acquire such property at a cost equal to the same amount. On dissolution of the Partnership, gains or losses on the Partnership’s assets will be reflected in the computation of the Partnership’s income or loss, and in the Limited Partner’s share of such income or loss. The adjusted cost base of the Limited Partner’s Units will reflect such gains and losses, and will reflect the distribution of cash or property to the Limited Partner on the dissolution. Minimum Tax Losses of the Partnership deducted by a Limited Partner and capital gains realized by a Limited Partner may give rise to liability for alternative minimum tax. Filing Requirements Each Limited Partner must file its own tax return reporting the Limited Partner’s share of the Partnership’s income or loss. The General Partner will file an annual information return on behalf of all Limited Partners containing required information. The General Partner will provide Limited Partners with information as to the allocation of the Partnership’s income to each of the provinces in which the Partnership carries on business and an allocation of any withholding tax in respect of income earned by the Partnership. A Limited Partner that is a corporation will be required to file an Ontario provincial income tax return as a result of becoming a Limited Partner. Eligibility for Investment Units of the Partnership are not a qualified investment for trusts governed by registered retirement savings plans, registered retirement income funds, registered education savings plans, deferred profit sharing plans, registered disability savings plans, or the proposed tax-free savings accounts.
