Requesting an Extension of the Time Limit for Filing an Objection
If the date of your notice of assessment for the 2017 taxation year falls between February 19 and April 19, 2018, the deadline for filing an objection, mentioned in the "Additional information" portion of the notice, is incorrect.
The correct date is:
- April 30, 2019, if you are an individual; and
- June 17, 2019, if you are an individual in business.
Contact us if the notice of assessment was issued to a deceased person or to a member of the Canadian Forces. Special conditions apply.
If you do not file your notice of objection within the prescribed time, you can apply for an extension. The application must be made in writing within one year after the time limit for filing an objection has expired. In the application, you must explain why you did not file the notice of objection within the prescribed time and demonstrate that:
- you could not act within the time provided for objecting; and
- you applied for an extension as soon as circumstances permitted.
For more information, see the current version of interpretation bulletin LAF. 93.1.3-1, Extension of the Deadline for Filing an Objection, on the Publications du Québec website.
If we grant your application for an extension, we will inform you in writing and will consider the date we accepted the application as the date the notice of objection was filed.
If we deny the application for an extension, you can apply to the Court of Québec for a review of the decision within 90 days after the mailing date of the decision. If the decision concerns the goods and services tax (GST), you must apply for a review to the Tax Court of Canada; you have 30 days in which to do so. Note that you may have to submit two applications for a review if your file concerns the QST and the GST.
