Brokers' condo buying clients need to get their legal paperwork in shape before selling up or they could face the wrath of the taxman.

    I applaud CRA for being prudent and conduct thorough audit for condo investors as it is tempting for condo investors to flip the new unit before condo registration and closing.

    Maybe CRA should also look at the money laundering done "renting out" condos (& other vacant real estate). All those closed, but not occupied, condo units make it very easy for the "bad guys" to declare dirty money as "rental income". A condo that may have a real market rent of $1500/month, is left vacant & the launderer declares he is getting $3000./month in rental income. Dirty cash is deposited into the "landlord's/money launderer's" bank account as rental income. Mortgage payments, taxes, condo fees, insurance are tax deductions, launder to your hearts content, sell the unit at a profit & pocket the capital gain( less taxes of course).
    Isn't this a great country?
