Que­bec wants to al­low peo­ple to file a sin­gle tax re­turn

Journal Pioneer - - CANADA -

QUE­BEC (CP) — 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.
