Do I owe the government?

My employer is paying my tuition, and told me that I could claim the amount as a deduction, because it's a taxable benefit. I did, and now I've received a letter from Revenue Canada asking me to submit a T2202 form and to tell them who had given me money for my tuition. (I filed online, which is why I hadn't submitted the T2202 before.) Was I wrong to claim this deduction? (You aren't my tax lawyer, but you know about these things.)

Tax implications of selling on Amazon

If I sell off some of my books on Amazon, is that income I need to pay taxes on? I ask because I'll generally be selling my books at a loss - they're books I bought for myself, am done reading and want out of my spare bedroom. It's not exactly the product of a business plan.

Mass. income

My BIL claims that insurance settlements for injury are not taxable income in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. I can't believe the state doesn't overfish that particular revenue stream. So, is it taxable income or not?

Who pays fed taxes in America?

There's been a lot of news and talk about the Tax Policy Center's report that 47 percent of American's pay no federal income tax. Naturally the more rapidly Republican members of my family are repeating this ad nauseam to me. Can you point me to good links that factually refute this claim? Or is it in fact true? I'm not looking for debate, just facts about this claim.
