    June 11, 2012 - The Fraser Institute, an economic think tank that monitors tax freedom day each year, has confirmed that today is Tax Freedom Day for 2012. This is the day, on average, when Canadians have earned enough to pay the taxes they owe to all levels of government for the year. In 2005, under the previous Liberal Government, Tax Freedom Day was on June 26th, over two weeks later than this year. That means Canadians are keeping more of their hard earned money where it belongs - in their pockets. It has also been an important part of the Government of Canada’s efforts to help assure our economic recovery. That’s because money spent by Canadians helps fuel our economy. Since 2006, there have been over 140 tax reductions by the Government of Canada. Indeed, the Government has cut taxes in every way government collects them: Lowering personal taxes Cutting the GST from 7% to 5% Reducing business taxes Introducing the Tax Free Savings Account, pension-income splitting, tax credits for textbooks, transit passes, and kids’ sports and arts programs and much more. In fact, the Government reduced the overall tax burden on Canadians to its lowest level in nearly 50 years saving the typical family over $3,100. The Government also removed over 1 million low-income Canadians completely from the tax rolls. That’s good news for all taxpayers and the Canadian economy. read more
