Businesses and farmers directly impacted by flooding that are unable to file their retail sales tax or other provincial tax returns by the required due date can request a waiver of the interest and penalty resulting from the late return.
Requests must be in writing and include the following information: the business name, account number, return(s) the request is for, the affected business location, and a description of the circumstances that prevented them from filing their return on time. Requests should be mailed or emailed to the Manitoba Taxation Division and marked as a flood related request.
For more information, read Notice RST 13-07.
The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) also provides flexibility for businesses affected by flooding, including small businesses and self-employed persons. These taxpayers will be eligible to seek relief from penalties and interest that arise from missing tax reporting and payment deadlines.
