GST Self-Government Refund

Along with the enactment of the Labrador Inuit Land Claims Agreement Act a separate tax treatment agreement came into effect on December 1, 2005. The tax treatment agreement provides for a 100% refund of that portion of the federal segment of the HST paid on goods and services acquired by the Nunatsiavut Government and its eligible entities provided that input tax credits are not available and the other eligibility conditions are met.

The Nunatsiavut Government and its eligible entities may claim the self-government GST refund using the Application for GST/HST Public Service Bodies' Rebate and GST Self-Government Refund (GST66). The claim must be filed within four years after the tax was paid.

The Labrador Inuit Tax Treatment Agreement identifies the conditions under which a GST refund for self-government activities may be claimed.
