Corporate Taxes

The province of Alberta has a highly competitive corporate tax structure. It is the only province that does not have provincial retail sales tax, and there are no provincial payroll taxes, which are common in many other provinces.

A summary of Alberta taxes, levies and related programs and links to publications, forms and resources can be found here.
