Changes to Business Tax Laws - Update

Thank-you to those who supported the effort to extend the consultation period on the proposed changes to the taxation of private corporations.

We are now waiting and hoping that the government will take the feedback they received and amend their proposals to be less damaging to private business in Canada.
