  The Family Tax Cut is non-refundable federal tax cut available to couples with children under the   
  age of 18.  It allows one spouse to "effectively" transfer up to $50,000 of taxable income to a   
  spouse in a lower tax bracket. The maximum federal tax credit is $2,000 and there are no   
  provincial tax savings. Calculations are based on 2014 federal marginal tax rates and incorporate   
  the basic personal amount credit only. Taxable income is the amount on line 260 of your   
  individual income tax return. Annual investments in the TFSA are made at the end of the year.  
   This calculator is for illustration purposes only and is not intended to calculate your actual tax  
   liability. We recommend that you seek out your own legal, accounting, tax or professional advice  
   regarding your personal tax situation.
