Income Tax 2008


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,


again it is tax time and many questions come up in my mind.


I know schools have to charge PST/GST on training towards the PPL but SHOULD not tax the training for a CPL. Some of them do charge GST/PST but some don't. What is the deal here ?


And what about advanced training after the CPL, like mountain course, long line, night rating or IFR rating ? Do they get taxed with GST and/or PST as well or are they considered as commercial training and therefore "should" not get taxed ? But if they do, can one claim them on his/her tax form or only the amount before tax can be claimed ?


thanks for your answers.

HEre in Ontario we charge GST only on flight training, and IF you are attending a professional course (CPL/Instructor?IR and so on) you get a form known as TL-11B from us at the end of the fiscal year, and THAT applies to your tax return.


As an example, I redid my IFR a couple of years ago, and ended up getting a substantial amount of monies back on my taxes.
