Tax System Presentation
On Monday July 7, 2008, Moncton Mayor George LeBlanc appeared before the provincial committee charged with reviewing New Brunswick’s overall tax system. Among several key points the Mayor made in his presentation was that taxpayers don’t want to pay more taxes, but under the current property tax system, municipalities are struggling to maintain the level of service that citizens are demanding. Mayor LeBlanc also noted that the century-old assessment-based tax system is neither easily understood nor fair. And, while it is a familiar system in Canadian municipalities, it needs an overhaul.
"Right now, the market is driving municipal taxation; there’s got to be a better model," he said. View the presentation.
