Canada Tries to Entice Microsoft to British Columbia

turd ferguson Re:Yeah, right! (410 comments)

Ok folks, let's get this straight from right now. The tax estimates on the BC web page are based upon total taxes. Canada has so many different ways to tax you than the US uses that comparing just one or two of them is irrelevant. Canada has Federal income tax, Provinicial income tax(which is higher than the fed tax), 15 or 16% sales tax(which is applied to much more than it is in the US), about double the gas tax, and property tax. I'm sure that the estimate of 60% was an attempt to add all those taxes together.
