    Are new capital assets really a wise investment?

    Many farmers purchase capital assets in an effort to keep their tax bill to a minimum, as they believe the purchase of a new tractor or other piece of equipment is a good way to reduce their tax liability.

If your corporation purchases a capital asset, the prescribed capital cost deduction available will reduce your tax liability by the corporate tax rate (11 to 31 per cent, depending on your province). While it’s tempting to try to minimize tax, there are several other questions you should ask before investing in a capital asset.

The situation provides an incentive to review some of the common U.S. tax issues when a Canadian resident sells U.S. real estate.
