Stop taxing service industry tips!

Stop the taxing of tips in the service industry!

We need your support to make this happen. The CRA has already targeted casino employees and have required 100% declaration of tips on their taxes. Many employees have already been required to pay back thousands of dollars of tip earnings to taxes. Before long servers, bartenders and other employees of the service industry will all be targeted!

Tips are gifts from customers, taxes have already been paid on those dollars. Most people in the service industry are only making minimum wage, myself included. We struggle to make ends meet,which on minimum wage is virtually impossible. 

The government has no right to tips which are given for good service. Without tips rent alone is not even conceivable for most living on minimum wage, never mind trying to support a family.

There are millions of people working in the service industry in Canada. Almost all of us know at least one or more people that work in this industry that struggle financially. A mother, a daughter, son, friend etc. They can all benefit from the stopping of this thievery by the government.

If we don’t stop this the government will stop at nothing. This is not the way for the government to raise tax dollars. 

Please help with your support to make this change now! It will get worse but it will not get better unless we stand together to make a difference now.

We need to do this to insure we can provide the necessities needed for ourselves, our friends and our families.

Please sign this petition and share it with all of your contacts and ask that they do the same. Together we can make a difference!

Thank-you for your support.
