To the Prime Minister,
Canadians deeply value their homes. They work hard to take care of them and when they sell them, they use the money for things they need, including other homes.
Politicians say they are not planning on taxing Canadians on the sale of their primary residence, the home they own and live in.
But, right now, the government forces Canadians to report the sale of their homes to Revenue Canada at tax time. Why is that?
If the government isn’t planning for a home equity tax, it should delete this reporting requirement on tax forms.
We, the undersigned, call on the prime minister to remove the reporting requirement for home sales on tax forms.
