Fraser Institute Media Advisory: How Complicated Is Canada's Personal Income Tax System? New Study Coming Thursday, April 28

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - April 27, 2016) - On Thursday, April 28, the Fraser Institute will release a new study spotlighting just how arcane Canada's personal income tax system has become over the past several decades.

The study, Measuring Personal Income Tax Complexity in Canada, examines the evolution of tax legislation (federal and provincial), the increased number of tax expenditures (i.e. tax credits), and the sheer size of the Income Tax Act.

A news release with additional information will be issued via Marketwired on April 28 at 5:30 a.m. (EST).
