The tax system can be used to achieve public policy objectives through the application of special measures such as low tax rates, exemptions, deductions, deferrals and credits. The Department of Finance Canada publishes cost estimates and projections for these measures each year in the Report on Federal Tax Expendituresxxvi. This report also provides detailed background information on tax expenditures, including descriptions, objectives, historical information and references to related federal spending programs. The tax measures presented in this report are the responsibility of the Minister of Finance.
The Canada Revenue Agency Act requires the CRA to include in its annual reporting a copy of any report produced under section 59 or a summary statement of any assessment produced under subsection 56(1). The report and assessment are produced on an as needed basis. During 2017‑18, the Public Service Commission did not prepare, or have prepared on its behalf, a report to the CRA pursuant to section 59 of the Canada Revenue Agency Act on the consistency of the Agency's staffing program with the principles set out in the summary of its corporate business plan. For the same period, the CRA did not prepare pursuant to subsection 56(1) of the Canada Revenue Agency Act an assessment of the recourse the Agency provides or administers in its management of human resources.
