2010: BC Tax Advantage
British Columbia, like its neighbours Alberta and Saskatchewan, is enjoying robust economic growth and prosperity. The province and its citizens are benefiting from relatively high rates of economic growth, low unemployment, solid job creation, and increasing investment. Most of the economic indicators show a bright future for British Columbia. The question for British Columbians is whether or not the province can do even better. British Columbia is currently faced with an extraordinary opportunity. The province can create a tax advantage over all other provinces, including Alberta, by simply maintaining current per person spending, acknowledging more realistic revenue expectations, and focusing energy and resources on a three-year tax relief plan. The result would be a marked tax advantage for British Columbia in both personal and business taxes, which would improve the incentives for work, savings, investment, and entrepreneurship.
