Tax Credit for the 2013 Tax Year Open to Alberta Canola Producers

March 4, 2014

Canola growers in Alberta that do not request a refund of their check off from the Alberta Canola Producers Commission (ACPC) qualify for a tax credit for the 2013 tax year.

The Scientific Research and Experimental Development (SR&ED) tax credit allows canola growers to claim the tax credit for that portion of the check off paid that was used to fund qualifying research.

The rate for Alberta canola producers in 2013 is 19.47 percent. For example, for an individual grower that paid $100.00 in check off to the ACPC in 2013, $19.47 is eligible to earn the tax credit.

The tax credit can:

  • offset federal taxes owing in the current year,
  • be received as a tax refund,
  • be carried forward up to 10 years to offset federal taxes owing, or
  • be carried back 3 years to reduce federal taxes paid in those years.

Individual producers must file a T2038 (IND). Farm corporations must file form T2SCH31.

For more information, contact the Canada Revenue Agency or your accountant.
