How do I report non-taxable income from the World Bank, which is a "prescribed international organization" exempt from income tax?.

According to the World Bank, Section 110(1)(f)(iii) of the Income Tax Act (Canada) provides that a taxpayer, in computing taxable income for a taxation year, may deduct income from employment with a prescribed international organization to the extent that it has been included in computing the taxpayer’s income for the year. The Canadian Department of Finance has confirmed that the institutions of the Bank Group are prescribed "international organizations" for purposes of the deduction. Thus, under these rules you may deduct employment income from the Bank Group from the STC/STT taxable income that is subject to Canadian federal net income tax. Because the provinces other than Quebec impose provincial income tax based on basic federal tax payable, these rules effectively eliminate provincial income tax in those provinces on such employment income.

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
