Application for Cancellation of Interest, Penalties or Charges

You can request to have us cancel the interest, penalties or charges that you must pay pursuant to a tax law in the following specific situations:

  • You are unable to repay a fiscal debt, a large part of which is comprised of interest, penalties or charges. Your inability to pay can be substantiated further to a full financial review of your situation.
  • You incur the interest, penalty or charge as a result of an error in the documents or information we provided you with.  
  • An exceptional situation beyond your control, such as a flood or fire, a serious illness or accident, or a death in the immediate family, prevents you from meeting your tax obligations.

How to file an application

You can send us a letter explaining your situation or file one of the following forms:

  • Application for the Cancellation or Waiver of Interest, Penalties or Charges (MR-94.1-V)
  • Application for the Cancellation or Waiver of Penalties Related to the Sommaire Périodique des Ventes (MR-94.1.R-V)
  • Application for the Cancellation or Waiver of GST/HST- and QST-Related Interest or Penalties, or of QST-Related Charges (FP-4288-V)
