Nova Scotia. Provincial Tax Commissioner

Other forms of name: Nova Scotia. Provincial Tax Commission

The office of Provincial Tax Commissioner was created in 1965 to oversee the administration and operation of the various revenue acts on behalf of the minister of finance. In 1977 the commissioner was merged with the controller of revenue in the Department of Finance. In 1980 the commissioner again became separate from the controller. In 1996 the revenue acts were revised and consolidated and provision made for more effective enforcement of revenue measures. The Provincial Tax Commissioner was reassigned to the Department of Business and Consumer Services.
