Decide for yourself


Premier Christy Clark has promised to reduce
the HST by two percentage points – over the next
three years – as well as offer rebates to seniors and
families with children under 18.
Taxes would also increase two per cent for corpo-
rations, while a planned tax cut for small business-
es would be shelved to compensate for the revenue
lost by the other moves.
The rebates alone would cost the province more
than $200 million.
Those cheques, for $175 each, would be mailed
out at the end of the year, not in advance of the
upcoming referendum on the HST, in which reg-
istered voters get to mail in their opinions on
whether or not to keep the HST or go back to the
GST-PST combo.
The rebate only comes if the HST survives.
Getting rid of it could cost B.C. half a billion dol-
lars the first year alone; the province would also
have to repay the $1.6 billion federal transition
fund.
Cutting the HST just one percentage point will
reduce revenues by $850 million a year, which is
why the rate reduction would occur in phases, to
lessen the affect on the B.C. budget. It’s currently
in a deficit, even with unexpected revenue from
the HST.
The HST was supposed to be revenue neutral
and create more jobs. A recent study has shown
it has done neither; it actually costs families $350
more a year.
The proposed “fixes” to the HST are supposed
to even things out, lessen the burden on average
taxpayers. But if the Liberals were sincere, and not
so concerned about getting re-elected, they would
make the changes now.
Rather, they are being criticized for trying to buy
votes – offering people their own money back to
