Tax payable on an advantage

If the holder or a person not dealing at arm's length with the holder (including the RDSP itself) was provided with an advantage in relation to their RDSP during the year a 100% tax is payable, which is:  

For taxes payable on an advantage before March 23, 2017, you must file using Form RC4532, Individual Tax Return for Registered Disability Savings Plan (RDSP).

For taxes payable on an advantage after March 22, 2017, you must file using Form RC339, Individual Return for Certain Taxes for RRSPs, RRIFs, RESPs or RDSPs.

Payment of tax

Each person who is a holder of an RDSP is jointly liable for the taxes on prohibited investments, non-qualified investments and advantages described below. Where two or more holders of an RDSP are jointly liable to pay such a tax only one return needs to be filed on behalf of all the holders that are liable for the tax.

For taxes payable on an advantage after March 22, 2017, you must file using Form RC339, Individual Return for Certain Taxes for RRSPs, RRIFs, RESPs or RDSPs.

Note

When an advantage is extended by the issuer of an RDSP, the issuer, and not the holder, is liable for the tax. If the RDSP issuer is liable for this tax before March 23, 2017, the issuer must file a T3GR, Group Income Tax and Information Return for RRSP, RRIF, RESP, or RDSP Trusts. After March 22, 2017, the issuer must file the RC298, Advantage Tax Return for RRSP, TFSA, RDSP issuers, or RESP promoters or RRIF carriers.
