Single Seniors for Tax Fairness (SSTF) is a Canadian nationwide movement devoted to lobbying for revisions to the Income Tax Act to provide fairness and equity for single seniors, including lifetime single, widowed, divorced or separated seniors aged 65 plus.
Currently, our tax system supports marriage but our country’s demographics are changing. Numerous tax breaks are available to senior couples which allow them to take advantage of the system in ways that singles can't.
Also, seniors face extremely high taxes upon death. For example, those who have investments in a RRSP/RRIF portfolio may lose close to 50% of their money to taxes.
Our goal is to raise awareness about the unfairness faced by all single seniors. We want to get the attention of policymakers and government officials.
It's time for our tax system to treat everyone fairly.
This is what seniors are saying:
