My company has paid out my banked vacation in a lump sum as part of my severance settlement. The payout amount is just over $100K (less than $50K net after all the deductions). How could I limit my taxable income for the year?

It's probably to late. Anybody take there full paycheck and pay there own taxes.

So you get your 100k find a good flow threw jr oil/gas LP, put 50k in covers your tax and your return in 2 years will be just under 90% then if if if it makes money it buys share of a mutual fund.

Ask your company how much, if any, of your severance settlement qualifies as a "retiring allowance" under CRA rules. Part of it might be eligible for extra RRSP contribution room. There is a formula in CRA Guide to Registered Retirement Plans T-4040 - Chart 8.

Other than that, it's probably too late to do much now that it it has already been paid out. Might have been better to negotiate with company to see if it could be split over 2 tax years.
