The interest income from a convertible debenture will be taxed as regular interest income at your full marginal tax rate. Upon maturity, the principal amount is paid to the holder in the form of capital equity at a predetermined conversion ratio. There could be a capital gain or loss on the equity securities which would be realized when they are sold, not before. The conversion rate would represent the ACB of the equity securities.
