Proposed tax changes could create a 73% effective tax rate on the earnings from investments held inside professional corporations. This comes in addition to eliminating income splitting, paying tuition for children in college, and other changes. The loss of these benefits will affect physicians who are sole income-earners, on parental leave as well as those on sick leave. It will impact doctors at all stages of their careers.
