It's Income Tax Time: Deduction of Legal Fees

When you pay money to a lawyer to:

- collect late support payments from a current or former spouse;

- obtain a spousal or a child support order from a current or former spouse; or,

- seek an increase in spousal or child support payments from a current or former spouse,

you can deduct those legal fees from your taxable income.  These deductions should be set out in line 221 of your Income Tax Return, and are discussed further in a tax guide issued by the Canada Revenue Agency.  Henderson Heinrichs can help review and identify which client expenses are deductible to make the process as simple as possible.
