TAX PLANNING FROM THE KNOWLEDGE BUREAU



By Evelyn Jacks

Tuition funding is expensive, but there are ways and means to save for your children’s education, as I’ve illustrated in my previous post on registered plans. But there is also some tax relief available in the form of various lucrative credits and writeoffs from the government.
