Loopholes – Presented by Rodney Payne, CPA, CGA, Fitzpatrick & Co. @ Loyalist Country Inn
Oct 23 @ 10:00 am – 1:00 pm

Event Description:

Loopholes – Presented by Rodney Payne, CPA, CGA, Fitzpatrick & Co.

Tax loopholes aren’t just for the rich.  The Income Tax Act contains many deliberate (and some accidental) provisions that allow you to reduce your tax bill.  The first challenge is knowing where to look.  The second challenge is deciding whether or not to put your neck in the loophole.  In this presentation, Rodney will draw on his 24 years of experience in public practice to walk you through some common loopholes.  Bring your questions – maybe we’ll find something for you! Lunch included!

This session is co hosted by:
CBDC Central PEI and Greater Summerside Chamber of Commerce
