Cumulative Tax Credit

By mmuise

The Cumulative Tax Credit lowers the taxes coal and other mines have to pay by reducing the Net Revenue Tax based on the Net Current Proceeds Tax they have paid. This credit ensures that you only pay one of the two taxes.

Comments on Funding:

All of the Net Current Proceeds Tax your business pays is tracked in your Cumulative Tax Credit Account (CTCA). In future years when you pay Net Revenue Tax, you can claim the cumulative tax credit on your mineral tax return. The balance in your CTCA will then be deducted from the Net Revenue Tax you owe for the year.
