CFIB calls on Premier McNeil to join fight for small business tax fairness

As you have likely heard, the federal government’s Minister of Finance, Bill Morneau, is proposing sweeping changes to the Income Tax Act that would have far-reaching implications for all incorporated businesses in Canada.

With the existing challenges you already face running a business Nova Scotia; CFIB has deep concerns there will be an even higher cost for small and medium-sized firms in this province.

Premier McNeil said he’s heard numerous complaints about the proposed changes and he's spoken with Minister Morneau about the concerns he has heard.

While this is positive, we believe more must be done. We believe our provincial government has an important role to play in fighting for you at the federal level.

That is why CFIB in Nova Scotia is leading the Nova Scotia Coalition for Small Business Tax Fairness.

With the support of dozens of business associations across the province, the Nova Scotia Coalition for Tax Fairness is asking Premier McNeil to:

  • Understand that Nova Scotia's business owners will be hurt by these changes;
  • Stand up to the federal Finance Minister; and
  • Insist these proposals be taken off the table.
