By Brad Richert March 25, 2019

As with 99% (citation required) of political issues, the new BC Speculation Tax is rampant with partisan controversy, armchair critiques and a solid mixture of intended and unintended, likely and unlikely consequences.

If you’re reading this and you haven’t spent the 120-180 seconds it takes to declare your likely exemption (since, according to the BC government, 99% of us are – it says so on their website), you should click on this big massive button:

For your reference, here is our ever growing list of websites and articles dedicated to additional information on the tax. Of course, if these don’t help and you require some assistance, we’re always here to help! Just call 604-245-3200 or use the contact form at the bottom of this page!
