Everyone is saying there are no new taxes or tax hikes in Premier Mom Alison Redford's budget that was tabled yesterday. Well that's exactly not true. This is what is hidden in the so called no tax hike budget. You will be paying more in education property taxes. More than at any time in the last two decades.
Although the Redford government boasts about no tax increases or new levies in the budget, it hikes the province's 2012 education property tax take by more than at any time in the last two decades.So folks don't let Premier Mom pull the wool over your eyes. More tax hikes are coming but after the election. Remember what the throne speech said on Tuesday that there could be a review of income taxes.
Alberta taxpayers will shell out $1.8 billion in education property taxes to the province, an increase of more than $107 million over the 2011 total.
and you know what that means. Yup, most likely an increase your taxes that you are forced to pay so Premier Mom can placate her union friends and special interest groups.
I think the choice will be very clear in the coming spring election. Wildrose is the only party who will NOT raise your taxes. They will cut spending instead to get the books in order. Which will you choose? Think about it before you cast your ballot this spring.
