Did You Know?
The Income Tax Act holds directors of a corporation personally responsible for unremitted GST/HST, payroll withholdings, corporation taxes, WSIB premiums and interest and penalties. Because a “director” is not defined in the Act, this could include de jure directors (lawfully appointed) as well as de facto directors (persons acting as directors).
