FINANCIAL ADMINISTRATION ACT
Trena LaHaye Remission Order
P.C. 2016-868 October 7, 2016
Whereas the recommendation of the Treasury Board is required for the remission of other debts under subsection 23(2.1) (see footnote a) of the Financial Administration Act (see footnote b), and the Treasury Board has delegated to the President of the Treasury Board, pursuant to subsection 6(4) (see footnote c) of that Act, its power to make that recommendation in respect of remission orders in amounts of less than $25,000 for other debts that are under the responsibility of the Minister of National Revenue;
Therefore, His Excellency the Governor General in Council, considering that the collection of the amounts is unjust, on the recommendation of the Minister of National Revenue and the President of the Treasury Board, pursuant to subsection 23(2.1) (see footnote d) of the Financial Administration Act (see footnote e), remits to Trena LaHaye the following amounts paid or payable under Part I of the Income Tax Act (see footnote f) for the 2010 to 2012 base taxation years:
- (a) $6,272.10 as repayment of Canada child tax benefits; and
- (b) $270.55 as repayment of the goods and services tax/harmonized sales tax credit.
(This note is not part of the Order.)
The Order remits $6,272.10 with respect to Canada child tax benefits and $270.55 with respect to the goods and services tax/Harmonized sales tax credit received by Trena LaHaye in error to which she was not entitled. The remission is based on incorrect action on the part of Canada Revenue Agency officials.
