REGINA – If your business was directly impacted by the flooding that hit Saskatchewan earlier this month, you can apply for relief from penalty and interest charges for late tax returns.

“As in the past, we want to be flexible in instances where tax returns are filed late because of flooding,” Finance Minister Ken Krawetz said.

“Businesspeople in the flood areas already have enough to deal with, which is why the Government of Saskatchewan will offer penalty and interest relief in these situations.”

Affected businesses must submit a written request for waiver of penalties and interest to the Finance Ministry.

Requests should include the business location, and outline the reason why the flooding prevented the tax returns from being submitted on time.
