OSSGA offers levy update; comments due May 1
April 27, 2017 – Comments on the proposed changes to the Aggregate Levy (regulation 244/97) are due on May 1.
The OSSGA/TAPMO Joint Levy Committee has submitted a response to the proposed changes to the Aggregate Levy, Regulation 244/07. The comments focus on the proposed timing of the implementation of the levy, the amount of the levy itself; and, our collective concerns that the proposed regulations do not address the seven recommendations that the Committee believes are essential to ensuring the government’s ability to carry out its public responsibilities to appropriately monitor and enforce the Aggregate Resources Act (ARA).
OSSGA and TAPMO have proposed a three-phase system starting on Jan 1, 2018 and continuing yearly until 2020.
