Media Advisory: Need a Source Around Federal Budget Issues? KPMG's Tax Leaders Available for Comment

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - March 14, 2007) - The Finance Minister Jim Flaherty has announced that he will deliver the Conservative government's second federal budget on March 19, 2007. The government's minority status and ongoing speculation about the timing of the next federal election are undoubtedly influencing this year's budget-making process. This year's budget proposals could range from personal tax cuts and reduced tax on capital gains, to a review of the capital cost allowance system, to enhanced tax incentives for retirement savings and charitable donations.
