Break For Getting a Bit Political – Opposing the HST as Writers

If you service clients in Ontario or British Columbia, you are about to get some competition from a new tax called the HST.

I urge you to write the Ontario and BC governments if you are out of province, and in province contact your MPP.

Sample Letter

As a writer, I rely on Ontario/BC businesses for my income. If these businesses are suddenly slapped with the HST, when they were only used to paying GST before, this will be an immediate impact on their bottom line that they will feel, which may in turn translate to not purchasing my services. Real estate businesses are going to be hit particularly hard by this tax, and those clients that were in that sector were just starting to claw their way out of the recession.

The timing of this forced tax is wrong. If Ontario/BC were more prosperous, and was not trying to recover from the loss of thousands of manufacturing jobs and the global economic recession, it may have been introduced without incident. However, right now, the extra money that businesses will be spending on the HST is a huge blow to the Ontario/BC economy.

I urge you to reconsider the adoption of this tax at this point in time.

Sincere Regards,

For more on the tax see this article and many others like it:
