First Nations Tax Exemptions: What You Need to Know

Taxation and Indigenous Peoples

Course Description

In general, Indigenous people in Canada are required to pay taxes on the same basis as anyone else in Canada, except when the limited exemptions under Section 87 of the Indian Act apply. Join us for this informative webinar and learn the basics of tax exemptions for Indigenous Peoples.

Presented by Mindy Wight CPA, National Leader of Indigenous Tax Services, this webinar will include an in-depth discussion on employment and business income for status First Nation individuals, the CRA’s Indian Act exemption for employment income guidelines, court cases, and CRA interpretations to clarify which income is exempt.

We will also cover the process of reporting and filing tax returns with CRA for status First Nations individuals and business owners who have tax exempt income, as well as implications that have arisen from COVID-19 subsidies and programs.

What Will I Learn?

  • Tax exemptions for employment and business income under section 87 of the Indian Act

  • Practical examples that draw upon statutory law, case law, and CRA interpretations

  • What to keep in mind with COVID-19 subsidies and programs
