Tax Reform

Tax Reform

“The CTF may succeed in putting radical tax reform on the political agenda - or at the least provide some ambitious politicians with a platform for a future campaign ... under the federation's plan, everyone gets a tax cut of some kind."

-- Commentary, Maclean's magazine January 2008


“The Taxpayers Federation has developed an excellent reform plan with no losers, save for accountants.”

-- Commentary, Montreal Gazette, January 2008


“The CTF published a first-class report on tax reform ... the document is compelling ... Lower, Simpler, Flatter gives Finance Minister Jim Flaherty the dummies’ guide that he seems to need.”

-- Commentary, Globe and Mail, February 2008


“The CTF showed it was possible to find substantial tax cuts if Ottawa merely simplified the federal tax code and held spending increases to 2.5% annually, roughly the rate of inflation.  Lowering and flattening the income tax will help boost our slowing economy, and would be a vote-winner besides.”

-- Lead editorial, National Post, January 2008


“If Canadians like the simplicity and fairness of [the CTF’s] idea, they are not alone. Since the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, 15 eastern and central European countries have adopted variations of a flat or single tax model.”

-- Commentary, National Post, January 2008


“The taxpayers federation is proposing not just lower rates, but a much simpler tax system ... We couldn’t agree more,”

-- Lead editorial, Vancouver Province, January 2008


“By today’s conventional wisdom, the CTF plan is radical. But, so were balanced budgets and an end to bracket creep once upon a time.”

-- Lead editorial, Calgary Herald, January 2008


“Is there really such a thing as a ‘friendly’ tax system? One in which a tax return can be completed by a Canadian without a doctorate in economics?
Welcome to the world of simplified taxation, care of the CTF.”

-- Commentary, Vancouver Sun, January 2008

You have the power to change who influences politics in our country: big unions, big corporations and government-funded special interest groups can be challenged by the contributions of thousands of individual taxpayers who care to make a difference.
