Q&A With Gordon Pape: Income Tax And Your RRSP
Do I have to pay income tax on interest earned from my RRSP?
Q – I am holding a GIC in my RRSP. Do I have to pay income tax on the interest I get from it? I know that there are taxes on any money taken out of the RRSP, but what if you do not take money out? – George V.
A – No investment earnings are taxed inside an RRSP or RRIF. Tax is assessed only at the time money is withdrawn and then at your marginal rate. – G.P.
