On December 22, 2014, TEI submitted a letter to the Canadian Revenue Agency (CRA) listing concerns with the new filing obligations under section 156 of the Excise Tax Act raised by TEI members that would be best addressed in the new election form and its instructions. The letter was prepared under the aegis of TEI’s Canadian Commodity Tax Committee, whose chair is Richard Taylor of Rogers Communications Inc. Contributing substantially to the development of TEI’s comments was Chantal Grouix of SNC-Lavalin Group, Inc.
Daniel B. De Jong of the Institute’s legal staff coordinated the development of the Institute’s comments.
