Time Extension on Filing Your Objection Part 1in KD Professional Accounting Services News
Before formally filing for an objection, you first have to call or write the tax centre that processed your income tax return and try to resolve the matter. But if for some reason, the dispute is not resolved in this manner, your next step is to file a Notice of Objection with the Chief of Appeals at your Appeals Intake Centre (Western or Eastern Intake Centre).
You can file your Objection using My Account on the CRA website, writing to the Chief of Appeals or using Form T400A, Objection – Income tax Act.
Remember to take note of the printed date on your Notice of Assessment as your deadline to file your objection is 90 days from this date. Unless you are in a situation beyond your control, never miss this deadline.
If for some reason, you do miss this deadline, you can request for a time extension under the Income Tax Act provided that you are able to show that:
- Within the objection period, you could not object or have someone else object for you or you intended to object;
- You request for extension is submitted within one year of the expiry of the missed deadline;
- It would be fair to grant your application and
- You applied as soon as you could.
The Chief of Appeals or another authorized office can grant or refuse an extension. You will be notified of the decision in writing.
If the CRA grants you an extension, your objection is considered to be filed on the day that the CRA mailed your decision notice.
