Private corporation tax proposals unquestionably harm “middle-class” business owners

While the stated intention of recent tax cuts proposed by the Government is to close loopholes that benefit high-income earners, these proposals are actually an attack on all entrepreneurs.

Essentially, they and many other Candadian small business owners would be forced to shut down.
