Hi Everyone,

There are two items that I would like to know whether they are tax deductible.

Item-1:
In 2017, I purchased a used car which was worth around $15000 for personal use only. I know that one can certainly claim the return on a car bought for commercial purposes. But I need to be clear on the personal case. Kindly clarify, anyone.

Item-2:
The whole family had to make an emergency trip to overseas in mid December-2016 and come back to Canada a month later, in mid January-2017. The total cost of air tickets was around $8000. As the news of my father's passing away came, it was a quick decision and we flew within 2 hours of the purchase. Can I claim the tax return on the January portion?

Thank you.

AFAIK, the answer to both questions is no.
I have no idea why you would think your personal car is deductable. As to your airline tickets, also no as far as taxes go, but check with the airline you flew with, some may still provide a partial credit on compassionate grounds. The airlines I'm familiar with have done away with it.
