Ontario Track 3

Posted by 2 on

Ontario Track 3 is a charitable organization near and dear to my heart. After raising 2 special needs sons, I know 1st hand the struggles these kids go through. In particular, physically disabled people rarely get the chance to "soar" in sports and Ontario Track 3 enables them to try a sport that would otherwise be off-limits.

Taxing Donations

Posted by 2 on

Here’s another case of ridiculous taxation policy: I was just informed by the Ontario Ministry of Revenue that I have to charge PST (provincial sales tax) on every Tail Wags product donation. In other words, every time I donate a helmet cover to a charity, silent auction or blog site for review, I have to charge tax on the full value of the product even though the product was provided free of charge. At first I thought I misunderstood the auditor. “You’ve got to be kidding? Shouldn’t you be encouraging and supporting donations rather than creating deterrents?” My complaints fell...
