Immigrants complain Canadians pay too much tax, says in-house Canada Revenue Agency research. Chinese, Filipinos, Indians, Nigerians and Syrians interviewed by Agency researchers said that “taxes in Canada are expensive.”

“Canadians pay a lot of taxes,” researchers quoted one immigrant. “It’s scary,” said another. “They add up,” said a third.

“There is a perception taxes in Canada are expensive,” said an Agency report Qualitative Research On First Time Tax Filing With Newcomers To Canada. “Not only does tax on top of the price of goods and services add up quickly and make life in Canada expensive, there is also a perceived substantial difference between net and gross pay.”
