May 9, 2019 | Taxes and Decision Making
Amin Mawani (Associate Professor, Schulich)

This session will examine how taxes impact our day-to-day decisions, and how we can incorporate taxes to improve our decisions such as when we pay our bills; how we make charitable contributions; whether we paydown mortgage or contribute to RRSP; whether we should save inside RRSPs or TFSAs; where we should withdraw first at retirement (from RRSP, TFSA or non-registered savings); how we can effectively split investment income and pension income between spouses; and how we can incorporate taxes in planning for divorce settlements. This non-technical session will offer a primer on tax planning for people in all demographic groups.

This unique partnership is part of York University’s goals for community engagement and reputation-building, with a unique collaboration that invites alumni, students and their families, and the public to engage in meaningful talks and discussions.
