Many of the new laws that go into effect on January 1st will affect peoples’ pocketbooks.

There will be around 70 changes in the laws and tax regulations. Pensioners are among those who will do well by some of the changes, although private pension saving will be harder.

Some of the losers are car owners, high income earners, and home renovators, the last because the tax deductions for home cleaning, house renovations, and other home services will be reduced.

Families with small children will be affected as the structure for parental benefits for newborns is changing with the addition of a third benefit month earmarked for fathers only.
