2023 Taxpayer Relief Deadline Approaches

The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) has issued a reminder that taxpayers and registrants have until December 31, 2023, to submit taxpayer relief requests related to the 2013 tax year or reporting period. 

Those seeking penalty and interest relief must submit their requests within ten years from the end of the relevant calendar year or fiscal period. 

The CRA may cancel interest and penalties accrued within ten calendar years of the relief request, irrespective of the tax year or reporting period in which the debt originated. 

The deadline encompasses relief requests for the 2013 tax year, reporting periods ending in 2013, and interest/penalties from the 2013 calendar year. 

Taxpayers involved in CRA processes for the 2013 tax year should submit relief requests before the deadline through online services or by using Form RC4288 via mail or online submission.
