If you get acupuncture or massage in BC…

Now’s your chance to speak up!

The BC government is asking for feedback on the HST. That means you can have your voice heard. The referendum is June 24th, but you’ll want to speak up now.

If you get acupuncture and/or massage from BC practitioners, you have been paying 12% HST for close to a year now. Wouldn’t you like to go back to 5% tax or not be taxed at all for these regulated health professions? After all, these services help take the burden off of our overwhelmed healthcare system.

Please make the time to complete the following government HST survey. In the comments box be sure to include the recommendation that Registered Acupuncturists and Traditional Chinese Medicine should be made tax exempt, as an important part of the BC healthcare system.

In addition, there are a series of upcoming HST Public Forums. Attend one of these local events to let the government know your views.
