NB: Don’t Hurt N.B. Businesses with Property Tax Hikes

New Brunswick businesses already pay too much tax at every level, including property taxes. Commercial property taxes in New Brunswick are among the highest in Canada.

Yet, New Brunswick Liberal MLA Gerry Lowe introduced a bill in the legislature earlier this year to add a new property tax on machinery and equipment for businesses. That bill was withdrawn, but the issue is being studied by a legislative committee.

Raising property taxes in New Brunswick would drive away investment and make life more difficult for hardworking job creators in the province.

We, the undersigned, call on Premier Blaine Higgs and all MLAs to reject calls to increase property taxes on New Brunswickers.

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.
