Written in an accessible style, this text assumes that the student has no previous education in taxation. Byrd & Chen’s Canadian Tax Principles, 2015-2016 Edition, can be used with or without other source materials (this includes the Income Tax Act, Income Tax Folios, and other official materials). The Income Tax Act is referenced in the text where appropriate for further independent study. Students should be able to solve all of the end-of-chapter material by relying solely on the text as a reference. The text and problem materials are comprehensive of the syllabus requirements of the Canadian professional accounting bodies.
Instructor Resources, including material to be updated for the 2015 version of ProFile, PowerPoint presentations, Solutions Manual, TestBank, Tax Software Assignment Problems, Tax Return files, and much more, will be available from the Instructor's Resource Centre on the catalogue.
New to this edition: In Chapters 4 to 11, the new comprehensive case is the last assignment problem marked New on the problem concordance for each chapter. They include the Family Tax Cut and, while they cover issues from previous chapters, focus on issues covered in the chapter.
