Re: Request for an Advance Income Tax Ruling
XXXXXXXXXX (Business Number XXXXXXXXXX)
We are writing in reply to your letter dated XXXXXXXXXX (as revised XXXXXXXXXX), requesting an advance income tax ruling.
Further to our telephone conversation of XXXXXXXXXX, this will confirm that we will not be issuing an advance income tax ruling with respect to the limited partnership financing arrangement proposed in your request involving the application of the at-risk rules in the context of a tax shelter. Following a review of the request and an examination of our general policy on the scope of the advance ruling program, we have concluded that the nature of the arrangement being proposed is such that the provision of a binding commitment by the Canada Revenue Agency with respect to the tax consequences of its implementation would not be appropriate. We note that in accordance with paragraph 19(i) of Information Circular IC 70-6R7, Advance Income Tax Rulings and Technical Interpretations, dated April 22, 2016, the Directorate will not issue a ruling in respect of issues and/or types of transactions in respect of which it has publicly announced that it will not issue a ruling.
