"Tax cheats"? Liberals target minimum wage restaurant servers and their tips

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

 

The Liberals have a new group of Canadians they're calling tax cheats. This time it's food and beverage servers drawing the ire of the Canada Revenue Agency for not declaring all their tips to the taxman.

Ben Murphy, COO of Murphy Hospitality Group in Charlottetown PEI told the PEI Guardian that dozens of his service staff have been slapped with tax bills and audits from the CRA. One server, already struggling with her student loan bills, was slapped with a whopping $15K tax bill.

The liberals are on a witch hunt, looking for "tax cheats" around every corner of middle class Canada.

They have already come after small business owners, craft market sellers, and farmers. But this time the Liberals are digging deeper and going lower, targeting minimum wage earners who are often students.

Trudeau is refusing to repay his illegal billionaire island bills and Finance Minister Bill Morneau "forgot" to disclose his French villa to the ethics commissioner.

Are the waitresses at the local diner really the problem?

Unlike elitists who post here i know people who live on their tips, the government is taxing them based on a huge assumption. Not all servers work in a Hipsterbucks or some high end snobbery serving overpriced food like they think.

Andrew you are leaving out the other FREEBIES that we do not get. And you are comparing a working Canadian family to one damn refugee , after taxes and paying for what they get for free is left of 75,000? How about you lefties foot the whole bill personally for your own damn causes?

Andrew the government assumes a certain amount.

“As The Troll said, tax evasion is tax evasion”
Funny how “what defines tax evasion” constantly moves in one direction under this desperate corrupt government that has to somehow finance it’s out of control spending addiction. The middle finger is what the majority of Canadians are getting from these lying thieving low lives calling themselves “government” "

No, it’s still defined by “not paying your taxes”, something tipped staff have long had a reputation for doing since cash tipping is so hard to track.

Here’s a crackdown in 2012, so it’s not exactly a new phenomenon, nor limited to Trudeau. https://www.ctvnews.ca/canada/tax-crackdown-finds-many-servers-not-declaring-tips-1.870411

““The initiative did not cost taxpayers $100 million, as Trudeau had once promised. Instead, the Trudeau government spent $384.7 million on the program. They spent nearly four times as much as they said they would.” "

Even the highest number in those articles, 1.2 billion spread between 25,000, is 48k per over six years, or on average 8k a year – which is less than the 25k I cited. . 400m in one year is … 16,000 per. Still less than the number I provided.

So, yeah, my “fluffy liberal propaganda” seems pretty close, and is actually high if anything, by your own numbers. Even the very highest interpretation, the 1.2 bil over one year, still doesn’t make the Wards’ claim correct.

The Lieberals are not “helping” the middle class. They’re just helping themselves to whatever they can steal from the taxpayer. At this rate, they may find themselves with no support at all. Not to worry however. Jihadi Justin will use the weaponization of M 103 to declare himself permanent ruler like his father Fidel, and circumvent any possibilities of being tossed out in a democratic election!

How can a corrupt government go on unchecked? Obama’s IRS tried targeting conservatives and got busted but here they are enabled. Has Trudeau ever paid taxes? Of course not, he’s never worked

Miss Andrew Stephenson commented – “The refugee support package was about 25k, at most, and for only one year. Anything beyond that has to be privately sponsored. The average Canadian working family made about three times that, the median family income is 76k before taxes.”

Nice bit of fluffy Liberal propaganda there. Just a few links listed below, tons online with similar as well as more in-depth info, but of course facts befuddle libtard cheerleaders. Remember sheeple the budget WILL balance itself.

So how long before we’re taxed on the change we might have in the cushions of our couches? The Liberals need money to give away to the UN & foreign dictators & convicted terrorists so the little people had better stop questioning the political class for their blatant corruption & fork out the dough. Cue the cries of racism against anyone who doesn’t get in line.

“Moi aussi” Ms. Stephenson… So why isn’t Morneau being fined?… Await your usual spin on this one… "
He should be.

Just like the lying waitresses are.

As I said, tax evasion is tax evasion. I am not going to put him on a pedestal because he’s a liberal.

Every chance I get when talking to younger men and women, I ask them if they voted for that traitor Trudeau. And if they say yes, then I ask them if it was worth destroying our country by voting for a globalist nobody with a name? They shake their heads and not one of them defend his actions because it’s hurting them now. There’s nothing like real life experience to change people’s minds. To be fair, most young people have never wanted for anything, so until they experience the depravity that is being foisted upon our citizens that will ultimately destroy our country, how could they relate?

Dan Mancuso Mancuso,
right on!! I feel the exact same way. Canadians are going to just sit back and do nothing to stop him and sadly we who know what is going on and what is coming are going down with them.

Tom Bradly please tell me how they know what is being hidden? They are assuming.
commented 2018-02-13 23:08:29 -0500
Liberals are still saying how they’re for the middle class, yet their actions show they only care for their own interests. And it amazes me that Bill Morneau can just forget assets and he gets away with it. Had he been a conservative like Mike Duffy, he would be crucified by the CBC and their followers. Let’s all tell any server we meet that we don’t want the tips to go into their tip jar but into their purses or pants pockets. People need to know just how outrageous this self-serving gang of pirates are who the foolish millenials elected.

" One server, already struggling with her student loan bills, was slapped with a whopping $15K tax bill. "

Missing from this story: Whether the accusation and reassessment was actually unfair, whether she had been paying her taxes above the board. Sympathy factor changes a lot if it turns out that she did actually underreport by that much. Most of the time, The Rebel’s usually pretty quick on the draw for people being unfairly accused, yet not here… which just makes me really want to know even more.

Tax evasion is tax evasion.

Trudeau is definitely a major hypocrite. How much income tax has he personally avoided paying by burying it in “offshore deals” and laundering it through his foundation?

https://www.theguardian.com/news/2017/nov/05/justin-trudeau-adviser-stephen-bronfman-offshore-paradise-papers
“The chief fundraiser and senior adviser to the Canadian prime minister, Justin Trudeau, who played a critical role in the rise to power of the charismatic politician, was involved in the movement of millions of dollars to offshore havens, the Paradise Papers reveal. … The Paradise Papers put the spotlight once again on Trudeau’s record on tax fairness, only this time the focus falls within his inner circle. Specifically, on Bronfman, one of his closest advisers. The two men are childhood friends who in recent years have revived their bond to assist Trudeau’s meteoric rise. Bronfman, 53, raised $2m for Trudeau’s leadership campaign and was was rewarded by being made the Liberal party’s chief fundraiser with a seat on its national executive.”

“Young female servers are hurting from Trudeau’s CRA attacking them, however:
In the last election, young women came out in droves to vote for Trudeau. Almost twice as many voted for Justin than the Conservatives.
Karma "

True those flakes deserve what comes their way, however there are people that did not vote Libtard yet they get punished along with the Libtard cheerleaders.

This is just a taste of what’s to come…the Globalists are going for it, because they’re getting away with it!
Of all the crime and scandal and irregularities etc., that THEREBEL has exposed of the Justin Globalists in two short years, has any of it been addressed by the press, by the other politicians – like the so-called CPC, the police, the prosecutors or the professors? Has any of it been resolved? Has any of it been dealt with?
I suggest NOT!
I suggest all the crime and scandal and irregularities etc. will continue, will continue to escalate, and THEREBEL will continue to expose them…until…who’s not dead or in a Justingulag, is a brain-dead lefty zombie…a willing slave of the New World Order…No Canada.
And we’re just going to sit here until it happens…the juggernaut cometh.
I don’t know WHAT to do except flap my jaws…and that’s become…difficult, uncomfortable and dangerous!

Well, most of them probably voted for the islamic prime minister as they want to legalize green dope – so they now reap the rewards.

No pity.

Maybe they will smarten up next election but I somehow doubt it.

The true tax cheaters are Trudeau, Butts, McKenna, Carr, Wynne, etc., who irresponsibly spend Canadian hard earned taxes on things that are either frivolous, worthless or just plain stupid.
Everytime Trudeau opens his mouth or makes a decision Canadians are being cheated.
Yellow Rubber Duckie
8.0 M on a temporary ice rink
10.5 M to Khadr
Used Fighte Jets (he blew the F35 deal)
265M to UN for Paris Climate Farce
20M Clinton Foundation no strings attached
Aga Khan vacation.
Countless $$$ required at US border to handle illegals
Countless $$$ in energy investment dollars have left Canada due to delays
Countles $$$ in wasted time in Parliament trying to get answers from PM.
The list is much longer.

Trudeau is the biggest cheater of them all.
