OTTAWA, Dec. 3, 2012 /CNW/ - Tax complexity adversely affects taxpayers, businesses, governments and Canada's economy, which is why simplifying Canada's tax system is the number one policy priority for the Certified General Accountants Association of Canada (CGA-Canada). The association has led the charge urging the federal government to reform Canada's tax system and is now convening the first-ever summit on tax simplification in Canada.
On Tuesday, December 4, public policy experts will convene to discuss the matter of tax simplification and design a roadmap on how to move forward. An outcomes report, which will highlight key recommendations made at the summit, will be published and broadly disseminated early next year.
