Manitoba Budget 2015 - Small Business Corporate Tax Threshold

Included in today's provincial budget is an increase to the small business corporate tax threshold.
 
Finance Minister Greg Dewar says raising the threshold by $25,000 will take an additional 2,000 small businesses off the tax roll.
 
"I've met with small business. They've told me that if we reduce their taxes, they will take that money, they will invest that money back into their businesses and to create jobs and grow the economy."
 
Elliot Sims of the Canadian Federation of Independent Business says savings these businesses get from the increased threshold will be offset by another part of the budget: an increase of the minimum wage to $11 per hour in October.
