GST/HST credit payment—Problem resolved–Revised

January 2012

The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) would like to advise trustees in bankruptcy that the problem that was encountered with the issuance of the July 5, 2011, GST/HST credit payments and in some cases the October 5, 2011, GST/HST credit payments for situations involving bankruptcy accounts, has been corrected.

Trustees in bankruptcy that had submitted amended DC905 forms between February 14, 2011, and November 4, 2011, requesting that the GST/HST credit payments be sent to the bankrupts, may have had their requests inadvertently deleted by the system fix.

Trustees in bankruptcy that received GST/HST credit payments on January 5, 2012, for bankrupts that they had submitted an amended DC905 will have to re-submit the DC905 form to request that the GST/HST credit payments be sent to the bankrupts.

We regret the inconvenience that this has caused.

Trustees in bankruptcy who have questions regarding the GST/HST credit issuance process should contact Cindy Burke at 613-954-3123.

Taxpayers that have questions should be referred to the GST/HST credit information line at 1-800-959-1953.
