Minister Tables Legislation to Implement Budget 2018 Measures (Bill C-86)
The Minister of Finance has tabled a Notice of Ways and Means Motion to amend the Income Tax Act and the Excise Tax Act to implement several of the outstanding measures from Budget 2018. We expect that this legislation will be tabled as a bill in the House of Commons in the coming days. Notably, the bill also includes a new measure: a refundable tax credit for the Climate Action Incentive Payments under proposed ITA s. 122.8.
