BC: HST panel seeks fact-based input on referendum options

By CO Staffdyututrudqtrfqaqewcw @canadaone |

Interested parties have until March 4, 2011 to provide input on how the HST has affected consumers, businesses or the provincial budget.

The independent panel set-up to reviewing and report publicly on the pros and cons of the current HST tax system versus returning to the original PST/GST system wants to review fact-based submissions related to the panel's terms of reference:

  • The consumer impacts to individuals/families of each option.
  • The expected impact of each option to B.C. businesses and B.C. economic competitiveness.
  • The fiscal implications of each option to the provincial budget in both the short and long term.
  • Relevant information and analyses from other jurisdictions.

Submissions can be sent electronically to submissions@bchstinfo.ca, or faxed to 604 775-0727. Those that are received will be reviewed and provided publicly as part of the panel reporting process. (Duplicates will be noted and only provided once in the panel.) 

To learn more about the panel and its terms of reference visit www.hstinbc.ca.
