Are you eligible for the rebate?

You may be able to claim the public service bodies' rebate (PSB rebate) of the GST or the federal part of the HST paid or payable on eligible purchases and expenses if you are any of the following:

In some cases, you may also be able to claim a rebate of the provincial part of the HST. See the chart below for the rebate factors to use based on the applicable activity type for more information.

Note

You cannot claim a PSB rebate of the provincial part of the HST for a supply of goods on which you received a point-of-sale rebate when you purchased the goods.

How do you apply for the rebate?

To file your first rebate application, use Form GST66, Application for GST/HST Public Services Bodies' Rebate and GST Self-Government Refund. If you are a public service body who is resident in a participating province and you are claiming a rebate of the provincial part of the HST, use Form RC7066-SCH, Provincial Schedule - GST/HST Public Service Bodies' Rebate and attach it to your rebate application.

After we process your first rebate application, we will send you Form GST284, Application for GST/HST Public Service Bodies' Rebate and GST Self Government Refund, and, Form GST284 SCH, Provincial Schedule - GST/HST Public Service Bodies' Rebate, which are personalized versions of Form GST66 and Form RC7066 SCH, for your next application.

If you are a public service body that is registered for GST/HST purposes, you can use GST/HST NETFILE to electronically file your rebate application with your GST/HST return. For more information, see Electronic Rebate Forms.

How do you calculate your rebate?

There may be situations where you have to calculate your PSB rebate using more than one rebate factor. For more information, including examples, see Special rules for claimants with multiple activity types in Guide RC4034, GST/HST Public Service Bodies' Rebate.

If you are resident in more than one province, at least one of which is a participating province, you have to calculate the PSB rebate of the provincial part of the HST based on the extent you intended to consume, use, or supply eligible property or services in the course of your activities in each participating province in which you are resident. For more information and examples, see Special rules for claimants resident in more than one province in Guide RC4034.

What are the definitions/exceptions for the rebate?

An exception to each four year limitation occurs when the supplier is assessed for tax that was not collected from you during the period, and you then pay the tax after the four year limitation. If this situation applies to you, you can complete a separate rebate application to cover that claim period. For more information, see Filing deadlines for the public service bodies' rebate.

Line 300 - Definitions/exceptions/eligibility for claiming an amount on line 300

Municipality - Municipality means an incorporated city, town, village, metropolitan authority, township, district, county, or rural municipality or other incorporated municipal body, however designated, and such other local authority that the Minister of National Revenue may determine to be a municipality. Examples of other incorporated municipal bodies include incorporated communities in Newfoundland and Labrador, incorporated northern hamlets, and incorporated northern settlements in Saskatchewan.

Determined municipality - If a local authority is determined to be a municipality, it has the benefit of municipal status for all GST/HST purposes. For example, a paramunicipal organization can apply to be determined to be a municipality.

Designated municipality - If a person is designated by the Minister of National Revenue to be a municipality for particular exempt municipal services that it supplies, the person is considered to be a municipality only for the purpose of the PSB rebate and only for those particular exempt municipal services. The designation does not apply to the organization as a whole.

The designation allows the person to apply for a rebate of the GST/HST using the municipality rebate factor, but only for the tax paid or payable on eligible purchases and expenses used in the course of supplying the exempt municipal services for which the organization was designated.

For example, an organization that is not a municipality may be designated by the Minister of National Revenue to be a municipality if it operates a water distribution, sewerage, or drainage system and it provides services of installing, repairing, maintaining, or interrupting that system. Once designated, the organization's supplies of those services are exempt from the GST/HST. It can also claim a PSB rebate using the municipality rebate factor for the GST/HST paid or payable on eligible purchases and expenses used to provide those services.

Municipalities resident in a participating province - Municipalities resident in a participating province may also qualify for a rebate of the provincial part of the HST paid or payable (see table above).

Example (show/hide)

Example 1

You are a qualifying non-profit organization and you operate a qualifying facility.This means you are a facility operator. The only surgeries performed at your qualifying facility are day surgeries.

You provide exempt diagnostic and surgical services to a patient at the facility as part of a medically necessary health care process. The exempt service is provided under the direction of, and with the active involvement, of the physician who performs the surgery.

Can I claim the health care rebate?
Yes, you can claim the health care rebate because you are a facility operator and the service you provide meets the definition of a facility supply. Your supply of the service meets this definition because:

  • it is exempt of GST/HST;
  • it is provided to an individual at a qualifying facility, and
  • it is provided under the direction, and with the active involvement, of a physician as part of a medically necessary health care process.

You can claim the health care rebate, based on the following rule:

  • If you use your purchases 90% or more in a claim period to operate a qualifying facility that makes facility supplies or to provide facility supplies, ancillary supplies, or home medical supplies, you can claim a rebate of 83% of all of the GST and the federal part of the HST paid or payable. Also, you can claim the provincial part of the HST where it is applicable.
  • If you use your purchases less than 90% in a claim period to operate a qualifying facility that makes facility supplies or to provide facility supplies, ancillary supplies, or home medical supplies, you can claim the 83% rebate based on how much you use the purchases to operate the facility and/or provide these supplies. Also, you can claim the provincial part of the HST where it is applicable.

Example 2

You are a charity and you operate a qualifying facility. This means that you are a facility operator.

At your qualifying facility, you provide an exempt service of counselling to a person who wants to quit smoking. You also provide this service to other community members who are not ill but want help to quit smoking. The person delivering the counselling is not a physician and no physician is actively involved in the counselling.

Can I claim the health care rebate?
No, you cannot claim the health care rebate for providing this service because no physician is involved in providing it. This means that the service you provide does not meet the definition of a facility supply.

Although you cannot claim the health care rebate for the counselling services because they are not facility supplies, you may provide other property or services that do meet the definition of a facility supply. You may also provide ancillary supplies or home medical supplies. This means that, as a facility operator, you may still be able to claim the health care rebate for the GST and the federal part of the HST (and the provincial part of the HST where it is applicable), you pay to the extent that you operate a qualifying facility and/or make these other supplies. As a charity, you are generally entitled to a 50% public service bodies' rebate for the tax for which the health care rebate is not available.
