2007 Top Marginal Rates of Tax for Canadian Dividends

I've been researching into the tax implications of having various dividends and capital gains. I found a good resource from Grant Thorton LLP which I've shared here. Simply put in each province, when you combine federal and provincial tax rates, you're going to get taxed at a different rate depending if you declaring interest income, capital gains, foreign, eligible, or other canadian dividends. An eligible dividend is declared when it is awarded by a Canadian company. You will pay the highest rates of tax on common interest and on foreign dividends.
