CRA Charged Late-Filing Penalty Error for Trusts

April 26, 2024

The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) has identified that some trusts that filed their 2023 returns with T3SCH15, Beneficial Ownership Information of a Trust, have been charged a penalty of $100 or more in error.

Trusts that were filed after March 30, 2024, and before April 3, 2024, may have received a penalty for a late-filed T3SCH15 even though the return and T3SHC15 were filed on time.

The CRA is currently working on reassessing the affected accounts and will be issuing a corrective Notice of Reassessment to those impacted.

If you received this assessment in error and filed the T3SCH15 on time, there is no further action or payment required.
