Stop Corporate Tax Dodging

Canada’s Top 60 public companies have over 1000 tax haven subsidiaries or related companies.

They use these to shift profits offshore in order to pay less tax. A popular practice is selling a patent or trade mark to an offshore subsidiary and then charging itself licensing fees for the use of that same patent or logo.

How does our tax system let this boondoggle happen?

Déclaration commune de la Coalition canadienne pour une fiscalité équitable

La Coalition canadienne pour une fiscalité équitable appuie les efforts faits par le gouvernement fédéral pour éliminer les échappatoires fiscales qui permettent à certains riches du Canada de réduire l’impôt qu’ils paient en recourant à des entreprises privées.

Les échappatoires fiscales inéquitables accroissent l’inégalité et compromettent l’intégrité de notre régime fiscal et la capacité du gouvernement de financer l’infrastructure sociale et matériel nécessaire pour assurer la santé et la croissance de l’économie.

Joint Statement by Canadian Coalition for Tax Fairness

 The Canadian Coalition for Tax Fairness supports the federal government’s efforts to close unfair tax loopholes that allow some wealthy Canadians to reduce their taxes using private corporations.

Unfair tax loopholes exacerbate inequality, undermine the integrity of our tax system and diminish the ability of government to fund the social and physical infrastructure needed to ensure a healthy and growing economy.

I support tax fairness

The small but very vocal misinformation campaign threatens to scare the government out of taking this modest, but important step towards building a fairer tax system — which is why we have joined with Lead Now and created an open letter to Minister Morneau to let him know Canadians support the reforms.

Will you take a moment to add your name to this Lead Now open letter? If enough of us sign, it will give Morneau the confidence to keep pushing ahead.

Demandez au ministre Morneau de maintenir sa position sur l’élimination des échappatoires fiscales

Le ministre des Finances, Bill Morneau, a annoncé des consultations publiques sur sa proposition d’éliminer les échappatoires fiscales qui permettent à des particuliers à revenu élevé d’utiliser des sociétés privées pour payer moins d’impôts.

Sans grande surprise, ceux qui ont le plus à perdre commencent à répliquer. Il ne faut surtout pas laisser les intéressés couper court à cette petite, mais ô combien importante, initiative visant à rendre le régime fiscal plus équitable.
