TFSA Contribution Limit for 2022Submitted by Justin Hayek on December 31st, 2021
Starting January 1, 2022 you can contribute an additional $6,000 to your tax-free savings account (TFSA). This brings the lifetime contribution limit to $81,500 total, provided you were at least 18 years old in 2009.
With a TFSA, you have the ability to contribute up to the maximum allowable anytime during the calendar year. Any unused contribution room carries forward.
Contributions to your TFSA can be done in a couple different manners; in cash or in-kind. A contribution of cash is straight forward and typical of most contributions. We even have the ability to set up automatic monthly and bi-monthly TFSA contributions whereby funds are automatically withdrawn from your bank account and contributed to your TFSA here at PI Financial. A contribution in-kind refers to a contribution of a security to a TFSA. This can be a stock, bond, mutual funds, warrants, etc. So long as the security is registered account eligible, it can be contributed to your TFSA.
A couple of notes on contributions in-kind. A contribution in-kind may have tax implications however as the CRA would deem this a disposition. That is, if the market value of the security is greater than the cost base, the contribution will trigger a capital gain. Conversely, contributing a security where the cost is greater than the market value (ie a loss), does not trigger a capital loss.
Benefits to Investing Through a TFSA
The benefit to investing in your TFSA is as the name implies - tax free capital gains. The monetary difference between a regular taxable account and a tax free account can be substantial. Take the below for example.
A few assumptions: A resident of BC, in the top tax bracket, with an annual contribution of $6,000 at the start of each year, invested over 20 years earning a return of 10% per annum as interest income.
