- Tax-Free Savings Accounts now available with TD -
TORONTO, Jan. 2 /CNW/ - A smart new year's resolution is to save for the
future. A new and easy way to do this is to open a Tax-Free Savings Account
(TFSA), now available through TD Canada Trust and TD Waterhouse.
With a TFSA, Canadians do not pay tax on investment income and gains
earned in the account; can withdraw money without a tax penalty; can
contribute up to $5,000 in 2009 and have the ability to re-contribute any
amounts withdrawn and carry forward unused contribution room indefinitely.
"By opening a TFSA, you can make it your new year's resolution to save
more and pay less tax," said Patricia Lovett-Reid, Senior Vice President, TD
Waterhouse. "We encourage customers to talk to us about how a TFSA can fit
into their financial plan."
Customers can visit any TD Canada Trust or TD Waterhouse branch or call
1-866-222-3456 (TD Canada Trust) or 1-866-280-2022 (TD Waterhouse) to discuss
any of the following types of Tax-Free Savings Accounts:
- The TD Canada Trust TFSA which offers the High Interest TFSA Savings
Account, and GICs and Term Deposits.
- The TD Mutual Funds TFSA which offers a full suite of TD Mutual Funds
with a proven history of long-term investment performance.
- The TD Waterhouse Tax-Free Savings Account, which offers a broad
range of investment options from TD Waterhouse Discount Brokerage,
Financial Planning and Private Client Services.
"We started pre-registering for the TFSA in late November and we've had a
strong response from our customers," said Sarah Armstrong, Associate Vice
President, Retail Products, TD Canada Trust. "Offering the TFSA to our
customers is just one part of our commitment to making banking a convenient
and comfortable experience."
