If a TFSA holds a non-qualified investment, or carries on a business, the TFSA trust is taxable on any income earned on and any capital gains derived from the non-qualified investments. You must report such income on Form T3RET, T3 Trust Income Tax and Information Return

TFSA holders are liable for a 1% per month tax on their excess contributions and non-resident contributions. For more information, see Guide RC4466, Tax Free Savings Account (TFSA), Guide for Individuals.
