Script Details

Custom Demo Required 
Good morning! It’s seven-thirty in the a.m. on June the 10th.
Happy Tax Freedom Day Canada!
You’ve worked 6 months and 9 days so far, but none of that money was yours. It all went to taxes.
But no worries, the money you and your family make from this point forward is finally going into your own pockets.

That’s right, folks, it’s Tax Freedom Day, the day you start working for yourselves and your family instead of the government!

The thing is, a lot of these taxes are invisible… A dollar here, a dollar there.
The system is often designed so you don’t notice them.
Let’s take a moment to really think about the dizzying array of taxes you’ve paid since January 1st.

Income tax, sales tax, payroll tax and property tax to profit and gas taxes… Liquor Tax, Amusement Tax, Excise Tax, Import Duties…
Tax Freedom Day represents the total tax burden imposed upon Canadian families by federal, provincial and local governments – a staggering forty-three-point-six percent of your annual income!

It’s no wonder Tax Freedom Day comes 2 days later than last year, since Canadian governments have increased taxes from Employment Insurance premiums at the federal level, to higher provincial sales tax in Manitoba, increased health taxes in BC, higher personal income taxes in Quebec, BC, and New Brunswick, and higher business taxes in BC, Manitoba, New Brunswick and PEI.

And though our economy is improving, your family’s tax burden is actually rising in lockstep with your income because of our country’s progressive tax system.

Since the federal and most provincial governments have seen fit to run deficit budgets they are effectively kicking their debt further down the road, passing today’s tax burden on to your children and grandchildren.
In fact, if they were to make up for their budget shortfalls with increased taxes, we would be celebrating Tax Freedom Day 9 days later on June 19th.
Happy Tax Freedom Day Canada!
