March 2018 Update: Timelines on Income Tax Objection Assignments and Resolutions
Are you waiting for your income tax objection to be resolved? Here is an update on the timelines with regards to the assignment and resolution of income tax objections based on its complexity.

1. The majority of low complexity objections now being assigned to an appeals officer were received in January 2018. Objections resolved in March 2018 were completed in an average of 81 days from the date the objection was submitted. Low complexity objections often involve issues such as individual tax credits, personal deductions, Canada Child Benefit and Disability Tax Credit.
2. The majority of medium complexity objections now being assigned to an appeals officer were received in April 2017. Objections resolved in March 2018 were completed in an average of 314 days from the date the objection was submitted. Medium complexity objections often involve issues such as business expenses and more complex T1 issues.
3. High complexity objections on average may take over 690 days to resolve. High complexity objections involve large corporations, complex business transactions, international transfer pricing and General Anti-Avoidance Rule assessments. These objections represent only 2 to 3% of the CRA’s total Objections Program workload.

Note that the average times given above do not include the time taken by taxpayers to provide addition information to support their objection.
