Taxes versus the Necessities of Life: The Canadian Consumer Tax Index, 2007
— Published on April 16, 2007
The Canadian Tax system is complex and there is no single number that can give us a complete idea of who pays how much. That said, The Fraser Institute annually calculates the most comprehensive and easily understood indicator of the overall tax bill of the average Canadian family: Tax Freedom Day. This Alert examines what has happened to the tax bill of the average Canadian family over the past 45 years. To determine the changes, an index of the tax bill of the average Canada family, the Canadian Consumer Tax Index, is constructed for the period 1961-2006.
