Proposed Tax Changes Affecting CCLA Members
September 22, 2017
As many of you know, the federal government has introduced potential changes to the Income Tax Act that will have an adverse effect on members using a professional corporation structure to carry on their legal practice. The Federation of Ontario Law Associations, on behalf of ourselves and the other associations in Ontario, has joined the Coalition for Small Business Tax Fairness, and has added its signature to a letter sent to the Finance Minister on behalf of the Coalition expressing concerns with the proposed changes.
The CCLA invites those of our membership who wish to do so, to provide further support for FOLA’s actions, by:
1. Signing the petition from the Canadian Federation of Independent Business.
2. Engaging in the social media debate (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.) using the hashtags #unfairtaxchanges #taxesinéquitables in your posts,
3. Calling or writing your local MP in order to register your concerns, and/or
4. making your own submission to the Department of Finance by e-mailing them at: firstname.lastname@example.org
