I think some low paying service oriented occupations should be income tax exempt.

    While I don’t agree on a good many of your comments Eagleone, on this one I most certainly do concur. However, Canadian federal personal income tax is calculated based on taxable income, then non-refundable tax credits are deducted to determine the net amount payable. For 2015, every taxpayer can earn taxable income of $11,327 ($11,138 in 2014) before paying any federal tax.

    Your proposed tax exemption system is already in place, it just need some minor adjustments to accommodate people working for less than a “living wage”.
