Carbon tax and cardlocks

Jun 21, 2019 | 16:41 1 Just a follow up on carbon tax and card locks. Went to see local heavy equipment business about getting a card as I have just been filling slip tanks at retail coloured tank. Filled the last tank day before carbon tax came in.

Mentioned to owner it will be nice not to pay carbon tax on dyed fuel through card lock. Looks at me strange and his old man says then you'll have to get it delivered to the farm.

Me: Well here I thought card locks were exempt in Ontario with the L403 exemption form. I knew retail wasn't, but pretty sure cardlocks were.

Owner:Well, yes, but CRA has ordered cardlocks to keep detailed records as to who and how much carbon tax should have been collected at each sale and keep that on file indefinitely. Just in case it is decided in the future that Ag should not have been exempt and they go after back taxes, interest and penalties.

Me: Ohhhh, those dirty fuckers.

Owner: Yeah, I told them to go fuck themselves and everyone can pay the tax. I'm not hiring someone to do CRA's job for them. Either your exempt or your not. But those pricks are keeping the back door open for later.

Me: Be kind of a nasty surprise if you got a carbon tax delinquency bill in a half dozen years for several thousand dollars.

Owner: No shit.



Just so you guys know, a record is being kept. Reply With Quote
