There was a great article today in the Globe & Mail about tacking your Adjusted Cost Base.  This is essentially needed when you dispose of equity investments in a non-registered account.  Gains and Losses must be reported.  You do not get a Tslip for that investment income.  You only pay tax on 50% of the gain you make.  This article explains it very well.  Of course if you are our client, we will do this for you!!
