Juanita Said:Canada CRA Individual Tax Reporting of Capital Gains?
We Answered:No dividends are considered income as they are earned by owning not selling the security. How they are reported by you depends if they are Canadian or foreign. If they are Canadian you would report on schedule 4 and claim the dividend tax credit on line 425 of schedule 1. This information would be reported on either a T5 or T3 and it would state whether they were eligible or regular dividends. Foreign dividends and foreign tax withheld would be reported as foreign income.

Your question omits the most important information. Is this building bought by an individual (sole proprietorship) or a corporation?
For an individual, all income is lumped together on the individual's tax return and bracket, including cap gain.
Since you don't indicate the individual's other income, it's not possible to know what tax bracket (s)he is in. As well, you don't factor in expenses, such as mortgage interest, property taxes, utilities, etc, which are all deducted from income.
