Marginal Tax Rates: Alberta

Alberta announced their tax credit improvement September 12, which E&Y have analyzed to mean:

Investors Taxable Income Marginal Rate on Interest Marginal Rate on Dividends Equivalency Factor
Widows & Orphans $30,000 25.25% 3.63% 1.29
Professionals $75,000 36.00% 13.83% 1.35
Plutocrats $150,000 39.00% 18.18% 1.34


Hah! The equivalency factors aren’t as good as for BC and Ontario! It almost eases the sting of realizing just how low taxes are out West!
