Potential Canada Post mail disruption (notice posted September 18, 2018)

As you may be aware, Canada Post and the Canadian Union of Postal Workers are in negotiations on a new contract.

Payment of Levies, Corporate or Commodity Taxes or Penalties

If a mail disruption occurs, it continues to be your responsibility to ensure all filing and payment requirements under the applicable legislation are met within the legislated timeframes. 

You will be liable for all applicable penalties and interest if documents are not received on time by Tax and Revenue Administration (TRA), even those that are late as a result of the disruption. 

We encourage you to pay online through your financial institution.

Mail Delivery of Rebate, Refund, or Grant Cheques

If a mail disruption occurs, initially TRA will suspend mail delivery and hold rebate or refund or grant cheque(s) and notices, unless you sign up for direct deposit (where applicable).

If the mail service interruption lasts for an extended period (multiple days):

  • TRA will work with Service Alberta to establish additional locations for mail delivery to and from TRA, and for pick up of Remittance Advice forms at various locations throughout the province;
  • endeavour to inform you when notices show amounts owing; and
  • provide a means for requesting payments of refunds and rebates.

For more information during a mail disruption please visit tra.alberta.ca or subscribe to TRA’s subscription service to receive notification when new information is available on the website.
