Did you know?
If you don’t file your GST/HST returns, your tax refund will be placed on hold.
The Canada Revenue Agency will place a hold on your personal income tax refund if you own or operate a sole proprietorship or partnership and you have not filed your goods and services tax/harmonized sales tax (GST/HST) returns. If you have a GST/HST account, you must file a GST/HST return, even if you have no income or GST/HST to report. Try filing online – it’s fast and convenient!
How do you get a hold on your personal tax refund removed?
If your income tax refund is being held because you did not file your GST/HST returns, simply file your return(s) and the hold will be removed.
To find out more about GST/HST accounts, such as how to register an account, collect, file and remit the GST/HST, go to Canada.ca/gst-hst.
