Federal poll finds few Canadians believe wealthy and corporations pay fair share of taxes
A recent poll in Canada revealed that a majority of those polled feel that the wealthy and large corporations should be taxed more to support the poor. Most individuals polled said that everyone should pay their fair share. They also agreed that tax evasion causes a worse situation for those who are in fact honest. However, some people felt that a little bit of cheating on tax reporting was all right. Most respondents felt that taxes have improved since they were polled in 2011.
“When asked if it was acceptable to not declare income received under the table on tax returns, more than three-quarters of respondents said they disagreed, and 78 per cent disagreed that tax cheating is not a real crime.”
