-If these shares are subsequently disposed, a capital gain or loss can occur depending on whether the sale price is greater or lower than the option price paid to acquire the shares Note: The below 2 points regarding the Stock Option Division C Deduction - ITA 110 (1) (d )   @ 50%  will  be discussed futher in Lecture 10 (ie, not tested in the Midterm exam)  This is because it is a Division C deduction, and hence it cannot be deducted in computing net  employment income, ie Division B income. 1.- Depending on the type of shares being acquired,  a n employee taxable benefit under ITA 7(1) can occur upon exercising the options at a value greater than the option price, however , any benefit reported can be offset by a Division C deduction of 50% under ITA 110(1) as long as the option price at the time of granting, was then equal to or greater than the FMV of the shares . If the option price was less than the FMV, then no ITA 110 (1)(d) deduction is available ie, full taxation on this employee benefit. 2- For CCPC's , a deduction under ITA 110(1)(d) equal to 50% of the reported employee income benefit is also allowed, if the option price on the grant date was equal to or greater than the FMV of the shares. However, if this condition is not met, then the ITA 110(1)(d) deduction is not available , but a similar 50% deduction under ITA 110 (1)(d.1) is available, as long as the shares are held 2 years after their acquisition Tax consequences regarding the exercising of options depend on whether the shares being acquired are for Publicly Traded Corporation Shares or Canadian Controlled Private Corporation (CCPC) Shares 1. Publicly Traded Corporation Shares       = an immediate employee taxable benefit equal to the difference between the                                                                    FMV and the option price

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
