Carlos Leitao said Wednesday that details of the cuts will be announced in next Tuesday’s economic update.

Leitao says in a video posted to Facebook alongside Premier Philippe Couillard that citizens in what he calls the middle-income tax brackets will see a concrete reduction in taxes.

The finance minister adds the economic update will include a plan he says is unique in North America to help reduce poverty.

Quebec tabled its third-consecutive balanced budget last spring, which included a modest $55 tax cut for the 2017 tax year.

At that time Leitao said the province was on pace to end the 2017-18 fiscal year with a $2.5-billion surplus.
