Horgan out of touch with income tax realities

It is time for John Horgan to face the fact that B.C. taxpayers pay the second lowest provincial income taxes in the country.

It is time for John Horgan to face the fact that B.C. taxpayers pay the second lowest provincial income taxes in the country.

John Horgan is paid a taxpayer funded salary of $156,014.49 per year, $104,009.66 for an MLA salary and an additional $52,004.83 for the job of official opposition leader.

With a yearly income of $156,014.49 John would pay taxes of $16,282 in Alberta, $15,647 in B.C., $19,961 in Saskatchewan, $23,426 in Manitoba, $14,099 in Ontario, $40,173 in Quebec, $22,920 in Prince Edward Island, $23,900 in Nova Scotia, $22,785 in New Brunswick, and $20,481 in Newfoundland.

John also has to face up to the fact that he has his version of the two per cent 2016 income discount only applied to B.C.’s wealthiest. If he would have done his research, he would have learned that the two per cent additional discount applied to all B.C. citizens with a yearly income of over $106,543 per year. Quite comical for a man that wants to try and become premier of the province.
