Public input to HST

A new online survey asks British Columbians how to improve the harmonized sales tax (HST).

The B.C. Government wants you.

Or at least they want your ideas.

A new online survey asks British Columbians how to improve the harmonized sales tax (HST).

The government-run survey allows the public to engage directly with the government on the HST and gives space for comments.

According to the release, in addition to looking at changing the HST, it will also discuss the consequences of returning to the two-tax system of the provincial sales tax (PST) and goods and services tax (GST).

Upon visiting the survey, the questions are aimed at pointing out the negative consequences of losing the tax and returning to a two-tax system and the options for changing the tax are limited, but there are opportunities for further comments.

 

The survey can be found online at: http://www.HSTinBC.ca/survey
