The Ontario transitional tax debits and credits are reviewed by the CRA after December 31, 2008.

Corporations are also subject to an  Ontario transitional tax debit or be eligible to assert an  Ontario transitional tax credit as a result of the harmonization of the 2 legislative acts governing federal and Ontario financial gain taxes.

Available to:

Specified companies that are subject to Ontario transitional tax debit or claiming the Ontario transitional tax credit. The definition of such companies is out there on form type T2SCH506.

SR&ED Government deadline for claiming the credit:

For Ontario and federal corporate income tax reasons, taxpayers usually have tax pools with relevancy amounts that may be carried over to a different tax year—for example the pool for unwanted SR&ED expenditures. Currently, tax pool balances is also completely different for federal and Ontario functions. However, upon harmonizing with the federal definition of assessable financial gain, every Ontario tax pool balance can assume its federal price (the quantity within the federal pool). In several cases, this may need upward and downward adjustment to the Ontario pools, which can lead to future Ontario tax gains or losses for companies. SR&ED performers could elect to defer the results of the transmutation tax debit associated with unwanted SR&ED expenditures.
