On-reserve retailers may claim a tax refund on their fuel and tobacco sales made to status Indians.
On-reserve retailers that have entered into an arrangement with the Ministry of Finance are able to sell fuel and tobacco products tax-free to status Indians who presented a valid Certificate of Indian Status Identification card at the time of their purchase.
How to Apply
On-reserve retailers report their tax-free sales made to eligible status Indians through their Point of Sale cash register system that is electronically connected to the Sites system.
On-reserve retailers submit their fuel and tobacco purchase invoices to verify that tax was paid on the fuel and tobacco products that they sold tax free to eligible status Indians.
The sales data is matched to the purchase invoices and a direct refund deposit is issued to the retailer’s account.
