Making your way through the complex

This past year has been marked by numerous tax changes, many of a highly technical nature. Taxpayers engaged in international transactions may be affected. Other measures enhance targeted programs, such as film and media tax credits and scientific research and experimental development incentives. Two provinces – British Columbia and Ontario – are replacing their provincial sales tax with a Harmonized Sales Tax on July 1, 2010.

Tax Facts and Figures will help you identify and understand the tax rates and tax changes that apply to you or your company. However, this information is most effective when used in tandem with professional advice.
