Laurel Broten, a public policy expert and former senior Ontario cabinet minister led a comprehensive review of Nova Scotia's tax system and regulations.
The Nova Scotia tax system has been developed over many years, but it has never been evaluated or updated in a comprehensive way. The review looked at the impact of taxes, fees and regulations and what changes would improve Nova Scotia's economic and business climate.
The report, written by Laurel Broten, was released Nov. 19, and makes 22 recommendations about taxes, and 20 more for regulations, fees and related areas. It is the first comprehensive assessment of Nova Scotia's tax and regulatory system.
We would like your feedback on the report. Please contact us at novascotia.ca with your thoughts.
