Competitive corporate taxes
Alberta has one of the most competitive tax environments in North America. It is the only province that does not have a provincial retail sales tax and there are no provincial capital or payroll taxes, which are common in many other provinces and U.S. states.
The combined federal/provincial corporate income tax rate is 25% for general businesses and 14% for small businesses and a competitive corporate tax rate is in place for manufacturers.
