December 2017 – News Release
CCRVC is encouraged that Ministry of Finance will address CRA Tax Issue in next Budget after the Report of the Standing Committee on Finance included a recommendation to have small private campgrounds qualify for the small business tax deduction.
Currently, under the Income Tax Act of Canada small private campgrounds which employ less than 5 full time employees year round are unfairly classified as a “specified investment business” and are threatened by a near 50 % investment tax rate as compared to the approximate 15% (Provincial/Federal) Small Business Tax Rate.
“We are optimistic that after appearing in front of the Standing Committee on Finance (FINA) in Charlottetown, PEI during Pre-Budget Consultations in 2016 and having being successful having our recommendation included by FINA in both 2016 and 2017 that the Minister of Finance will support our request and include in the 2018 Federal Budget” said Shane Devenish, Canadian Camping and RV Council’s Executive Director.
