TRA's online services
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.
TRA recognizes electronic signatures. To add a digital signature, the form must first be downloaded or opened as a PDF.

Tax and Revenue Administration (TRA) maintains a central list of Alberta government departments and agencies exempt from paying the federal Goods and Services Tax (GST) as set out in section 125 of the Constitution Act of Canada.
TRA also files the Alberta government’s GST returns, remits GST payable by Alberta government entities, and recovers overpayments.
