The Truck Loggers Association Webinar on Proposed Federal Tax Changes

Last week, the Truck Loggers Association hosted a webinar by MNP LLP on the proposed federal tax changes and how they will affect independent timber harvesting contractors. We recorded the webinar (see below) and now you can watch it at your leisure.

This is an important topic. The deadline for feedback to the federal government is Monday, October 2. If you would like to share your feedback, please read the TLA's drafted response and consider sending an email to Finance Minister Morneau.
