Alberta 2017 Budget - March 16, 2017

 - on Alberta website

Tax Changes in the 2017 Budget:

    - The dividend tax credit for non-eligible dividends will be revised effective January 1, 2017, but the amount of the credit was not disclosed.  The result will be that "Income earned in a small business and flowed out to shareholders will continue to be taxed at a minimum of 10%, Alberta's lowest personal income tax rate."

    - The amount of the political contribution tax credit will not change, but it will be extended to contributions to party leadership elections and candidate nomination races that meet the criteria established under the Election Finances and Contributions Disclosure Act.  This is effective for contributions made on or after January 1, 2017.

    - Education property tax rates will be frozen for 2017-18.

    - As previously announced, as of January 1, 2017, the carbon levy is charged on sales of fossil fuels that emit greenhouse gases when combusted, at a rate of $20 per tonne, rising to $30 per tonne in 2018.

    - The Capital Investment Tax Credit is being extended for a year, available for 2017 and 2018.

    - The post-secondary tuition freeze and tax credits are extended under the Jobs Plan.

    - The Education Tax Credit was not specifically mentioned, so it's assumed that they are not eliminating it.  Legislation would have to be introduced to do so.

Revised: March 17, 2017
