What you need to know about the $1.2B gas tax hike
With Alberta, gas prices have skyrocketed, and it’s getting worse.
The new $1,216 tax hike is going to hit us hard.
The province is raising the tax by 3% on all new and existing residential and commercial residential gas service bills.
And it’s going to make things a lot more expensive for Alberta consumers.
Here’s a breakdown of the new tax: 1.
The provincial gas tax will increase by $1 per litre on all residential gas bills.
This is the tax you see in the map above, which is the first time we’ve seen this increase in the province.
The first $500 of gas service revenue will be taxed at 10% and will be distributed equally among Albertans, but the amount is not guaranteed.
The government estimates that 50% of the revenue will go to the government and the other 50% will go into an escrow account to be used for capital projects.
Alberta residents will pay an additional 1.5 cents per litres for every 1,000 litres of gas they buy.
The Alberta government estimates the new rate will raise $500 million a year.
The total amount of gas tax raised by the government will be $1 billion.
All existing residential gas bill revenue will also be taxed, but only for new and additional residential service.
The federal government will also levy an additional $1 for every $1 of new residential gas sales.
The tax will also affect businesses, and will have an impact on new business formation.
The cost of operating a new business will increase for new business owners.
Alberta will be subject to a provincial-level carbon tax.
The $1 gas tax is one of the lowest in the world.
It is currently $1 on new retail gas purchases, and $1 a litre of retail gas sales, which will rise to $1 each on gas service.
The increase will increase the overall cost of gas for Alberta’s economy by more than $1 in the first year of the tax.
It’s estimated the tax will generate $1-billion in additional revenue annually.
The government is not saying what the new $2 fee will be, but it will affect businesses that are operating within the province or are currently operating in Alberta.
The province has announced it will not impose a carbon tax, and has said it will phase it in over five years.
The provincial government says that because the carbon tax will not apply to businesses and businesses will not be subject a provincial tax, it’s a win-win for Alberta and Alberta’s businesses.
“This is a win for Albertans and Albertans’ businesses, because we are able to support those businesses and to ensure we have a level playing field,” said Minister of Finance Doug Horner in a press release.
“The $1 million raised by this increase will be used to help invest in the energy and transportation sectors, including infrastructure, infrastructure that will be essential to the future success of Alberta.”
The tax is expected to raise an additional 50% from Alberta businesses, with a $1 trillion investment fund dedicated to this goal.
This fund will include money from a $500-million fund established to support businesses that will have to expand, expand and hire more employees, as well as $1 tax credits for those that will expand, and an additional tax credit for businesses that maintain existing operations in Alberta.
“Alberta’s economy will be hit hard by the new fee.
With gas prices at an all-time high and the province unable to meet its gas needs, Albertans will be paying more for gas, and this tax hike will likely drive up gas prices.
The Alberta government says it will spend $500m a year to support energy and infrastructure projects.
But this funding will also provide for a $4.2-billion funding program to be administered by the Alberta Utilities and Commerce Commission.
This program will create a new, permanent fund to help offset Alberta’s energy and carbon emissions.
“I don’t want to create a whole new class of carbon tax that will only affect a small percentage of Albertans. “
I think we have to be very careful about what we are doing, because the new taxes will be a big part of that,” she said.
“I don’t want to create a whole new class of carbon tax that will only affect a small percentage of Albertans.
The question is what the impact will be on Albertans.”
