How the 2024 Federal Budget Impacts Your Farm

The federal budget was revealed a few days ago. The lengthy budget reforms included many changes, the most noteworthy were to capital gains taxes.

Although I am still waiting for clarification from my accountant on particulars, to the best of my knowledge the highlights are:

1-Capital gains will be 66.6% on any gains over $250,000 after June 25, 2024. They used to be 50%.

2-The $1,000,000 capital gains exemption will be raised from $1,000,000 to $1,250,000.

What does this mean for farmers and owners of farmland?

In short, this means a lot more tax for anyone selling land that has a capital gain applicable.

If you have been considering selling land where a capital gain applies, you may want to consider selling it before June 25, 2024.
