So, if you paid ,000 in interest payments for the year and you have marginal tax rate of 40%, you will get back ~,400 of it. Apply the tax return and investment income (dividends etc) against your non-deductible mortgage and invest the new money that’s now in your HELOC. Repeat steps 3-5 until your non-deductible mortgage is paid off.As you can see, this process will pay down your regular mortgage in a hurry.So I understand that we want to convert our mortgage as quickly as possible but it seems to me that the interest savings will not be enough to outweigh the large tax return and sheltered growth involved with our RRSP.Can someone please explain to me why we shouldn’t do any RRSP investing until we convert our mortgage into good debt?The Below is a link to the Windows 7 drivers that were compatible with my Easy CAP device and further down a list of other Easy CAP drivers you can try.All of them require you to disable Windows Driver Signature from Advanced Startup; you can read about this from Sparkfun’s tutorial for Disabling Signed Driver Enforcement in Windows 8.Kinda wordy I know, in layman’s terms, if you get a loan with x amount of interest / year, you can claim that x interest during income tax season if you use the loan towards stocks or rental properties.If you’re still confused, please read on below where I will eventually explain everything step by step.
Other driver packages and installers that might help other frustrated Easy CAP users (some are duplicates but different driver versions), good luck!So, who came up with this idea and how does this apply to making a mortgage tax deductible? Fraser Smith has all the answers and he has written a book on the topic which explains how to do this properly.To summarize the Smith Manoeuvre in a nutshell, it’s where you borrow against the equity in your home, invest it in income producing entities, and use the tax return to further pay down the mortgage.Sell all existing stock from non-registered investment accounts and use it towards a down payment for step 2. Nothing unique about this setup EXCEPT that as you pay down the mortgage, the credit limit on the HELOC increases.This is a key feature that is needed when implementing the SM. Use the HELOC portion of your mortgage to invest in income producing entities like dividend paying stocks or rental property.
Repeat until your mortgage is completely paid off leaving you with a large portfolio and an investment loan. Your mortgage is now an investment loan which is tax deductible and hopefully, your portfolio is larger than your loan.
