Canadian employees feel overburdened with taxes and most don't understand the deductions on their paycheques, according to a new survey.

The survey, released by the Canadian Payroll Association (CPA) to mark National Payroll Week (Sept. 10 to Sept. 14), is based on the responses of more than 2,000 payroll professionals across the country.

It found that 67 per cent of these professionals reported most employees in their workplaces feel overtaxed.
