The Canada Revenue Agency Answers Questions on the Harmonized Sales Tax (HST)

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 22, 2010) - The answers to dozens of questions about the implications of the HST for Public Service Bodies (PSBs) are available from the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA).

As Ontario and British Columbia move towards implementing the HST on July 1, 2010, PSBs – including non-profit organizations, charities, municipalities, school and hospital authorities, public colleges and universities – may have questions concerning HST rebates or other rules or requirements resulting from the new tax.

To answer these questions, the CRA has developed the following publication: Harmonized Sales Tax for Ontario and British Columbia – Questions and Answers for Public Service Bodies. To view the publication go to:
http://www.cra.gc.ca/E/pub/gi/notice253/

For more information about the implementation of the HST, go to www.cra.gc.ca/harmonization. The CRA updates these pages regularly. To receive information as it is updated, sign up for the HST electronic mailing list (www.cra.gc.ca/lists) or RSS feed (www.cra.gc.ca/rssfeeds).
