Attribution Rules

In Canada, a series of rules set by the Canada Revenue Agency governing transfers of assets between family members. For example, the attribution rules do not allow two spouses to divide income between themselves in such a way that it reduces their overall tax liability. Attribution rules were devised to prevent citizens from taking advantage of family relations to unfairly avoid taxes. See also: Tax evasion.
