What is Happening with the 2023 Carbon Tax Grant/Exemption?

In this transition year, the Greenhouse Carbon Tax Relief Grant will cover the period of January through March 31st based on actual usage, so getting your usage as soon as possible is important. Applications need to be submitted by May 31, 2023. According to the website, if you do not complete the certificate, you’re responsible for paying the full tax as applicable even if you qualify for the partial exemption. To see the full government website click HERE. In speaking with Fortis, they indicated that their billing will not change potentially until the summer. The Government also announced a refund process for carbon taxes paid starting April 1, 2023 (if you have submitted a certificate). The form for that refund is being developed.

So, what do you need to do?

  1. Submit Form FIN 463, Certificate of Partial Exemption to your gas supplier or marketer and supplier right away. The Fortis email is [email protected]. For Shell Natural Gas you can email [email protected]. We are still getting details on how to claim Propane through Shell marketers.
  2. Apply for the Greenhouse Carbon Tax Relief Grant as soon as your March billing is available.
  3. Apply for any refund for gaps in implementation between April 1, 2023 and when your supplier implements the point of sale credit. This piece is still in process.
