Home renovation tax credit

2010-03-19

Queen’s University economics professor Robin Boadway is available to discuss the end of the federal government’s home renovation tax credit program, which ends Jan. 31.
“The home improvement tax credit was a reasonable component of the government's stimulus package. But it makes little sense to extend the deadline or make it into a permanent program. It should end when it falls due on January 31.”
Robin Boadway is a professor of economic theory at Queen's University in Kingston and a graduate of Oxford University. He has served in the past as president of the Canadian Economics Association.
