Happy (Belated) Tax Freedom Day

Estimated reading time:  30 seconds

Canadians celebrated Tax Freedom Day on June 10th.

The Fraser Institute, a leading think tank, calculated the total tax burden imposed on the average Canadian family by our three levels of government.

Read the Fraser Institute report here.

If families were required to pay their total tax bill in advance, they would give up every dollar they earn to government before Tax Freedom Day, which this year fell on June 10.

The list of taxes includes income taxes, payroll taxes, health taxes, sales taxes, property taxes, fuel taxes, vehicle taxes, profit taxes, import taxes, “sin” taxes and more.

It might be said that for more than five months in 2015 we worked for free.

If only that was the worst of it. (It isn’t)

The Fraser Institute didn’t mention the looming tax time bomb in your future. Read this.
