Que­bec wants to al­low peo­ple to file a sin­gle tax re­turn

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - CANADA -

QUE­BEC — The Que­bec gov­ern­ment will for­mally ask Ottawa to al­low peo­ple in the prov­ince to file a sin­gle tax re­turn.

Fi­nance Min­is­ter Car­los Leitao says he be­lieves the fed­eral gov­ern­ment has shown open­ness to the idea even if there are cer­tain ob­jec­tions. It is not clear when Que­bec will send a let­ter to Ottawa to make the for­mal re­quest but Leitao says it will be soon. Mem­bers of the leg­is­la­ture adopted a unan­i­mous mo­tion this week calling on Ottawa to al­low Que­bec to ad­min­is­ter a sin­gle-tax sys­tem. The ini­tia­tive came a few days af­ter the fed­eral Con­ser­va­tives in Que­bec passed a res­o­lu­tion aimed at com­bin­ing fed­eral and pro­vin­cial tax re­turns into a sin­gle form col­lected and ad­min­is­tered by the prov­ince.
