  • municipal taxes
  • land transfer taxes

  • health and education tax
  • hospital tax

You can also deduct annual dues or fees to keep your membership in a trade or commercial association, as well as subscriptions to publications. You cannot deduct club membership dues (including initiation fees) if the main purpose of the club is dining, recreation, or sporting activities.

Licences (business taxes and memberships) for fishers

Enter the total cost to renew your annual licences. If you bought a licence from another fisher, you can only deduct part of the cost each year.

If you bought a fishing boat and the price included the cost of a licence, you need to know what part of the price was for the licence and what part was for the boat. Try to agree on these amounts with the seller.
