2013 Ontario Budget Bill Passes into Law 

Canadian Tax Adviser


June 18, 2013


Legislation to enact certain tax measures in Ontario's 2013 budget, tabled as Bill 65, received Royal Assent on June 13, 2013, making these measures enacted for U.S. GAAP as of that date. Previously, Bill 65 received third reading on June 11, 2013, and is therefore considered substantively enacted for purposes of IFRS and ASPE purposes as of this date (Ontario has a minority government). Bill 65 does not contain any corporate income tax rate changes (as no changes were announced in the budget), but includes personal tax measures and retail sales tax measures from the budget.

See TaxNewsFlash-Canada 2013-19, "Highlights of the 2013 Ontario Budget" for further details of the province's 2013 budget.
