Canada: SR&ED tax credit filing deadline, other tax deadlines extended (Alberta)

Canada: SR&ED tax credit filing deadline (Alberta)

Alberta extended certain tax-related deadlines for up to six months as measures intended to provide relief in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.


As part of this relief:

  • Alberta extended scientific research and experimental development (SR&ED) tax credit filing deadlines that occurred on or after 13 March 2020 by six months or to 31 March 2021, whichever date comes first.
  • Alberta will allow taxpayers additional time to apply for an extension to file a “notice of objection” (although there is no extension to the 90-day period to file the notice itself).
