Carbon levy – Information for fuel sellers

Information on carbon levy registration, reporting, paying and applying for a refund. The carbon levy is no longer in effect as of May 30, 2019.

COVID-19 response: TRA's online services and special notices

Tax and Revenue Administration (TRA) encourages taxpayers to use electronic means (for example: Netfile, TRACS, secure email, electronic payment, etc.) to submit payments, registrations, applications, returns, claims, objections, waivers and appeals.

In order to reduce the necessity for taxpayers and tax preparers to meet in person, TRA will recognize electronic signatures. To add a digital signature, the form must first be downloaded or opened as a PDF.

For more information, see TRA online services.

Bill 1, An Act to Repeal the Carbon Tax, received Royal Assent on June 4, 2019. The carbon levy no longer applies to any type of fuel effective as of the beginning of the day on May 30, 2019. Fuel sellers are expected to comply with the changes set out in the Bill.
