A primer on public transit tax credit: YN5-122/2017E-PDF

“This primer responds to the 3 May 2017 request made by the Honourable Pierre Poilievre regarding the fiscal impacts of the proposed elimination of the federal Public Transit Tax Credit. Specifically: the increased cost to individuals who took the bus and no longer have this credit available; the impact of this cancellation on persons with disabilities and living in low-income or poverty; and the possible behavioural changes arising from the after-tax increase in the cost of public transit"--Introd., p. 1.
