The federal 1/3 tax exemption for municipal elected officials will end on January 1, 2019. This change will have a significant impact on the after-tax compensation of municipal elected leaders. In collaboration with UMNB and other municipal associations, FCM has produced a guide [Link] for municipalities about options for adapting to the change.

UMNB is joining FCM and other provincial & territorial municipal associations in lobbying the Federal Government to re-evaluate the removal of traditional tax exemptions for municipal officials.
