Les impôts et taxes: le plus gros poste budgétaire des familles Canadiennes
Via Toronto Sun:
Taxes are taking a bigger chunk out of Canadians' budgets than basic necessities like food, clothing and shelter, a new report from the Fraser Institute says.
The public policy think-tank calculated that over the past 50 years, an average family's total tax bill has increased 1,738%, the report Canadian Consumer Tax Index 2012 said.
Over the same period, the cost of shelter increased by 1,185%, food by 518%, and clothing by 500%.
"Taxes from all levels of government make up the single largest expenditure facing Canadian families," Charles Lammam, Fraser Institute associate director of tax and budget policy research, said in a release about the report Thursday.
