Share Us On:

Canadian tax law has a provision for deductions against income for the lessee to make taxing fair for people who are leasing their vehicle. The tax code is supposed to provide a measure of fairness, so be sure to make the most out of your deductions to save your money. Eligible Leasing Cost We’ll walk through the calculation that the CRA uses to calculate the eligible leasing cost. The cost is how much you’ve been charged in the year for leasing the vehicle.
