This image is of the revised notice of assessment that the Canada Revenue Agency will start sending out in October 2016. It includes four notes explaining how the notice’s contact information, account details, key information, and account summary are simplified and easy to understand. The four notes read:

  • “1. Contact information – Appears in the top left corner”
  • “2. Statement Date Information – Organized so you can easily identify your statement details”
  • “3. Action you need to take – Provides your information and if actions are required”
  • “4. Your current balance – Provides you with your current-year balance”

You have received a Goods and services tax/Harmonized sales tax (GST/HST) credit notice because you filed a tax return, and the information on your return was used to calculate the credit.

If you have to repay some or all of your GST/HST credit, the notice will show a recalculation of the amount to which you are entitled, and any amounts due.

You must file a tax return every year, even if you don’t have any income, so that Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) can correctly calculate your GST/HST credit payment.

For more information about GSTC benefits, see Goods and services tax/Harmonized sales tax credit (GST/HST).
