The Daily EO: January 2nd, 2013

Yesterday, I did what I am sure all people rising on January 1st did – I checked to see if had updated their website so I could start 2012 taxes and I transferred my 2013 allocation into my TFSA.   (It’s the most wonderful time of the year).

I did meet a hung-over bearded man in the elevator wearing last night’s clothes, a toque and a large booger on his mustache.  I am sure that he did his transfer by cell phone just after the clock struck midnight.

But today, I remembered what I forgot: the TFSA contribution room each year is indexed to 2009.

January 2nd, 2013 Extra-Ordinary:  $500 more dollars in the old TFSA.   People, don’t forget!  Deposit today!  And organize your tax receipts!
