MEDIA ADVISORY - Jack Mintz to challenge logic of proposed taxes on stock options

TORONTO, Oct. 5, 2015 /CNW/ - In this federal election campaign, both the federal Liberals and the NDP have proposed new taxation of stock options, often used as a way to provide performance incentives to corporate executives in publicly traded companies.  Both parties claim that these new taxes would create significant amounts of federal revenue. 

But would they?  And what are the unanticipated consequences of new taxes on stock options?  Should Canadians care?

Media are invited to join Jack Mintz, President's Fellow at The School of Public Policy, at a media conference in Toronto where he will release a new report on the impact of new taxation of stock options.
