19 January 2019 Interpretation 165888

tax does not include tax paid in error

CRA indicated that the s. 123(1) definition of tax “is interpreted by it to include only amounts of tax that are actually payable under Part IX, such as tax under subsections 165(1) and (2),” so that “an amount paid in error as or on account of tax is not tax for GST/HST purposes.” Thus, in its view, such tax paid in error does not go into elements A and F of the special attribution method formula in s. 225.2(2), nor is a refund of the tax paid in error deducted under G of the formula as a refund of “tax under” e.g. ETA s. 165(1).
