ARCHIVED — Tobie Pelletier Remission Order

P.C. 2011-846 July 29, 2011

His Excellency the Governor General in Council, considering that the collection of the tax is unjust, on the recommendation of the Minister of National Revenue, pursuant to subsection 23(2) (see footnote a) of the Financial Administration Act (see footnote b), hereby remits tax in the amount of $8,387, and all relevant interest on it, paid or payable under Part I.2 of the Income Tax Act (see footnote c) by Tobie Pelletier for the 2008 taxation year.


(This note is not part of the Order.)

This Order remits a portion of income tax and all relevant interest paid or payable thereon by Tobie Pelletier in respect of the 2008 taxation year.

In 2008, Mr. Pelletier received a lump sum payment from a government agency, which he was entitled to receive in the years from 1999 to 2008. As a result of the income inclusion in 2008, Mr. Pelletier was required to repay his Old Age Security pension and net federal supplements for that year. The amount remitted represents the additional tax liability incurred by Mr. Pelletier as a result of the lengthy delay by the government agency in paying him the amounts to which he was entitled in the relevant years.
