HI Jin

Sorry about the question i know this has been asked before.

My tfsa has made money this year.

Do i sell everything before end of 2017 and reinvest my profits + my allowed contribution room for 2018? Is this allowed by cra.?

for example if i invested 5500 in 2017 made 1000 = 6500. would i reinvest my 6500 + new contribution room?

Hi Chris,

You don't have to sell your investments that are already inside your TFSA. Also, as long as the money stays inside the TFSA, you can reinvest it anytime in the future without worrying about the CRA.

Hope that helps,

ok so for example i have 300dollars in dividend cash + 300 dollars from a stock i sold. I plan on reinvesting this in Janruary into different stocks. does my tfsa limit of 5500 change?

basically what I'm saying is ice made some money in my tfsa and I want to reinvest. but I want to make sure my contribution limit stays the same.
