Does AB have P S T ?

Dear *

I copied this from an article on the Internet and it shows that there are no exemptions for natural resources in the ‘letter or spirit’ of the law,
I don’t think that natural resource revenue faces the same municipal tax disparity as commercial real estate.
Which really should not be a federal concern anyway.

‘…. the Constitution Act of 1982 redefined equalization as this:

36.2 Parliament and the government of Canada are committed to the principle of making equalization payments to ensure that provincial governments have sufficient revenues to provide reasonably comparable levels of public services at reasonably comparable levels of taxation.

Again, no mention of resources. The equalization system is designed with one purpose in mind: transferring funds to allow for an equanimity of public service. Excluding natural resources has no basis in the letter or spirit of the law, and flies in the face of the equalization program,….’

I’ve heard that Alberta does not have a provincial sales tax ?

Sincerely Yours,
