Provincial Carbon Taxes… Who pays them and how?

Bison Transport’s regional fuel programs can help you offset the true cost of fuel to move your freight.

When British Columbia became the first Canadian province to announce their intentions to impose a provincial carbon tax in 2008, most carriers and shippers were asking themselves and each other the following questions:  

  • What is this tax all about?
  • How will it be assessed?
  • Whose responsibility is it to pay the tax?
  • Should it be treated as a separate accessorial charge or part of the fuel surcharge?
