TEI Proposes Changes to British Columbia’s Provincial Sales Tax as Part of Annual Budget Process

On June 26, 2020, TEI filed a letter with the British Columbia's Select Standing Committee on Finance and Government Services proposing changes to British Columbia's provincial sales tax. The letter builds on earlier comments made to the Ministry of Finance in letters and meetings with Ministry officials and requested that the proposed changes be considered in conjunction with the annual budget process.

The letter was prepared under the aegis of TEI's Canadian Commodity Tax Committee, whose Chair is Chantal Groulx. Canadian Commodity Tax Committee Vice Chair Brian Moul and Pilar Mata, of TEI's legal staff, coordinated the development of the Institute's comments.
