TAX POLICY, BUDGET AND REVENUE OPERATIONS PROGRAM - VOTE 1202

This program has two components, Budget and Taxation Policy, and Tax Revenue. The Budget and Taxation Policy area advises and assists the Minister of Finance and the Government in formulating Ontario Budget policy including tax policy, tax design and legislation, federal-provincial finance policy and pension and income security policy; develops the Ontario Budget and other major economic/fiscal documents; manages the Province's taxation, intergovernmental finance and related policy development; co-ordinates research to identify broad economic taxation and fiscal implications of specific and emerging trends and developments.

The Tax Revenue area administers Ontario's tax statutes. The integrity of the province's self-assessment system is maintained by encouraging compliance through taxpayer information services and independent objections review, while discouraging non-compliance and tax evasion through collection activities, audits and investigations. The program also administers various tax credit and benefit programs.
