Brockville – Gord Brown, Member of Parliament for Leeds-Grenville – Thousand Islands and Rideau Lakes, today advised constituents that his 2018 Tax Guide is now available at his web site http://www.gordbrownmp.ca.
“The Tax Guide will help you ensure that you claim deductions to which you are entitled,” notes Brown. “The tax filing deadline is April 30, 2018.”
Canada’s Conservatives have always been a strong voice for the taxpayer, says Brown. The previous Conservative government built an impressive record of keeping taxes low for Canadian families, he adds.
“In fact, our low-tax measures helped the average Canadian family save over $6,600 per year.”
He encourages people to look through his Tax Guide to ensure that they receive all of the tax benefits for which their family qualifies.
“This Tax Guide will help you find all the tax savings you can claim, many of which were created by our previous Conservative government,” states Brown.
“Unfortunately, in the past two years, income taxes have risen for 81 per cent of regular families – with the average income tax hike amounting to $840 per year. These tax increases, combined with the loss of many important tax credits, have left many Canadian families paying more to the government while receiving less,” he explains.
“Please take note of the tax savings and unfortunate tax increases outlined in this guide. And please feel free to contact my office with any comments or questions that you may have,” he says.
