Sylvain Moreau, Taxation Partner, collaborated on the article in Protégez-vous magazine, entitled “Impôts 2014 : quoi de neuf pour les particuliers ?” (2014 personal income taxes: what’s new?) The article, written by journalist Annick Poitras, was published on March 4. Mr. Moreau points out that, due to the pre-election context, there is plenty of good news awaiting taxpayers from the federal government. On the other hand, “on the Quebec side, the winds of austerity are blowing”, the expert explains.

Following his collaboration with Protégez-vous magazine, Sylvain Moreau was invited by journalist Richard Langlois to comment live on the news regarding tax changes for individuals on the Rouge café radio show on 102.7 Rouge FM (Sherbrooke). In particular, this gave Mr. Moreau the opportunity to offer taxpayers some tips to help them maximize their income tax credits and deductions.
