Taxman coming to Atlantic Canada

The Canadian Revenue Agency plans to target fishermen, natives, waiters and waiteress in Atlantic Canada who may not be paying their taxes as a way to recoup some of the tax money lost in the underground economy.

Oh puh-leeze. Governent logic: Hire 77 more tax collectors to kill underground economy. It would never occur to them to lower taxes for everyone, and there would be no underground economy.

How many tax collectors does it take to screw in a light bulb?

John Murney said...

10 - one to hold the lightbulb, the other 9 to turn the room!

Seriously, it is appalling that any government would want to squeeze blood from a stone - the fisherman need a break. If they had more money in their own pockets by paying fewer taxes, they would consume more and, some of which would go back to the federal government in taxation revenue. Frankly, I am not too worried about government revenue; all of our government have spending problems, not revenue problems.

Our precious taxdollars are being wasted, once again.

Quick Question Tanis: Considering that the CTF does such a valuable job in informing Canadians about how much waste, mismanagement and fraud occurs in the Canadian Government with taxpayers dollars (and believe me... I am proud and happy of the service you are providing in doing so) Why in the world would the CTF advocate for people who are currently *not* contributing to this bloated sick mess of thieves to be punished. Does the CTF believe in principled objections to contributing to the Kleptocracy?
