As we wrote about here Canada’s carbon tax system is complicated and causing problems.

Recently, the Canada Revenue Agency (“CRA”) has been auditing and issuing assessments based on the technical requirements of the legislation.


Canada’s carbon tax legislation is called the Greenhouse Gas Pollution Pricing Act – and we will refer to it as the Carbon Tax Act or “CTA”.  The CTA was enacted in 2018.  Part of it enacts a “fuel tax” (called a “Fuel Charge” for optics) which adds additional Canadian taxation points to all transactions involving combustive fossil fuels.  The Fuel Charge is levied under Part I of the CTA.

An often-overlooked aspect of Canadian indirect tax is the degree to which provincial fuel and carbon tax statutes vary across the country — and the surprising and significant consequences for non-resident businesses with limited connections to Canada.

US and international petroleum traders selling fuel into Canada present a good example of the complexities in this area, and how the rules can vary substantially from province-to-province leading to unforeseen registration, licensing, and Fuel Tax collection requirements!
