Taxpayer Relief deadline for requests related to 2004 is December 31, 2014

by in Tax Advice Information and Updates

Please be reminded that if you are want to take advantage of the taxpayer relief provisions related to your 2004 taxes, your deadline is the end of the year, December 31, 2014 to make this request.

The deadline applies to relief requests from taxpayers and registrants (for both GST/HST and non GST/HST purposes) for:

1.     The 20014 tax year
2.     Any reporting period that ended during the 2004 calendar and
3.     Any interest and certain penalties that accrued during the 2004 calendar year for any tax year or reporting period.

Taxpayer relief allows for the cancellation or waiver of penalties and interest when taxpayers are unable to meet their tax obligations due to circumstances beyond their control. The CRA may also accept certain late-filed, amended, or revoked income tax elections and issue income tax refunds or reduce income tax payable beyond the normal three-year period.

The taxpayer relief is limited to a 10-year period. This means that the CRA may grant relief related to any tax year or reporting period that ended within 10 calendar years of the year the taxpayer relief request is made.

If you are not sure you need to make a taxpayer relief request but was involved in a tax process with the CRA (which includes an audit, objection, or appeal) for the tax year 2004, it is better to be safe and make the request before the December deadline.
