Digging into Impacts of MSP Payroll Tax

UBCM is looking into the impacts of the provincial government’s intention to replace MSP premiums with a payroll tax. Initial reports indicate that the proposed tax, one of several taxation measures announced in Budget 2018, will significantly add to local government expenditures. UBCM is reaching out to partners within the local government community to confirm data and share information with the province in advance of its implementation on January 1, 2019.

UBCM will provide further updates on its approach to collecting information from local governments in the coming weeks. If you have comments or questions, please contact Paul Taylor, Director of Communications at 250.893.8476.
