Public Forum On Proposed Federal Tax Reforms Being Hosted In Olds

An important public forum is being hosted by the Olds Institute on Monday, September 18th in regards to the proposed federal tax changes for small businesses.

A delegate from Compass Tax Law in Calgary will be speaking to the concerns and issues surrounding the federal government's proposed tax reforms at a public forum in Olds.
 
Terry Cody is the Chair of the Business Attraction Retention and Expansion Committee of the Olds Institute. He says Arthur Olson of Compass Tax Law will be in town to make an informative presentation and answer questions.
 
 
The government has proposed some very serious tax changes to the way small businesses, farmers, and professionals are being taxed as well as how they handle their money and how businesses can be transferred to the next generation, according to Cody.
 
.
 
Cody says really this is going to effect everyone and will have dire consequences for the town if the proposed changes are not made not just business people.
 

He notes Olsen is a tax lawyer who has worked in Ottawa with Government of Canada Finance Department and will explain the proposed changes.

 
He says hopefully the evening will motivate citizens of Mountain View County to voice their concerns with the federal government.
 
The tax public forum is on Monday, September 18th at 7PM at the Olds Evergreen Hall Conference Room.
