Biography / Administrative history
Tax Policy Branch is responsible for the development and evaluation of federal taxation policies and legislation. However, the actual collection of taxes and interpretation of tax law are the responsibility of Revenue Canada, a completely separate government department. The branch consists of four divisions and an Intergovernmental Tax Policy group focused on specific aspects of taxation. However, many of the responsibility areas for policy development are shared and projects may involve officers from more than one division or group. These divisions are the Personal Income Tax Division, the Sales Tax Division, the Business Income Tax Division, Tax Legislation Division and the Intergovernmental Tax Policy Group. The Senior Tax Adviser and the Tax Structure Committee reported to the Tax Policy and Legislation Branch, the precursor of the Tax Policy Branch.
