Businesses directly impacted by recent flooding activity in Saskatchewan can apply for relief from penalty and interest charges for filing late PST returns.
“We recognize the challenges and hardship that extreme emergency situations such as forest fires and floods can cause for business people in the affected areas,” Finance Minister Kevin Doherty said. “If they are unable to file their sales tax returns on time, we want to be flexible and provide penalty and interest relief on late tax returns for those businesses.”
Affected businesses must submit a written request for waiver of penalties and interest to the Ministry of Finance. Requests should include the business location and outline the circumstances of how the flood-related conditions prevented the PST return(s) from being filed on time. Requests should be marked as flood related and sent to the following address:
Ministry of Finance
Regina SK S4P 2Z6
Phone: 1-800-667-6102 (toll free) or 306-787-6645 (Regina)
Tax information bulletins and forms are available online at www.finance.gov.sk.ca/taxes.
The easiest and quickest way to file most provincial tax returns is to use the Saskatchewan Electronic Tax Service (SETS) located at www.finance.gov.sk.ca/taxes/efile/.
