Withholding tax

Policy statement

The Income Tax Act requires tax to be withheld on certain payments (for example, lump-sump payment from a registered pension plan). However, since a registered charity is exempt from Part I tax, the charity can apply to the Canada Revenue Agency for a waiver of the requirement to withhold tax.
