Canadian Tax Adviser, December 22, 2015. Ontario Bill 144, which enacts certain tax changes from the province's 2015 budget, received Royal Assent on December 10, 2015, and is therefore enacted for U.S. GAAP purposes on this date. Among other changes, Bill 144 includes measures to.
Amend the applicable tax rates related to a mutual fund trust's Ontario capital gains refund, beginning after 2015
Amend the conditions for the Ontario interactive digital media tax credit
Treat certain government payments as excluded government assistance for the purposes of the Ontario computer animation and special effects tax credit.
Bill 144 received first reading on November 18, 2015 and is therefore considered substantively enacted for the purposes of IFRS and ASPE as of this first reading date (Ontario has a majority government).
This is the second bill to enact changes in the province’s 2015 budget. The first was Bill 91, which received Royal Assent on June 4, 2014. More details can be found in the TaxNewsFlash “Highlights of the 2015 Ontario Budget.”
