Canadian Art Is Tax Deductible

If:  if you are operating a business (incorporated or unincorporated, including freelancers and sole proprietors), and the piece of art has been purchased with the intent of holding on to it for a long-term, to benefit your place of business. If this applies to you, we recommend reading on to understand the intricacies of deducting art.

Not tax deductible if: The art was purchased for any reason other than benefitting your place of business, e.g. for your home (unless your home is your place of business), as a personal, non-business related item, as a gift, or as a short term purchase to re-sell for profit.

Types of Art Purchases That Are Tax Deductible

The criteria for Canadian art purchases that are eligible as a business expense to reduce your taxable income are quite simple. For the purchase to qualify, the artwork must be:

  1. A print, etching, drawing, painting, sculpture, or other similar work of art – in other words, basically any form of visual art where evidence of the artist’s hand is apparent. A print purchased at Home Sense does not apply!
  2. Valued at $200 or more, verifiable by invoice receipt.
  3. Produced by a Canadian artist, or an artist who was Canadian at the time of creating the artwork.

Another great reason to support Canadian artists!
