The Ministry of Finance has been working to improve our tax administration services. As of March 29, 2010, refund applications for fuel, gasoline and tobacco refunds will be available online in a fill-and-print format, eliminating the automatic mail-out of paper copies.
To access the refund applications, visit ontario.ca/finance and in the 'Find page' field at the bottom of the website enter 1793 for Fuel Tax refund applications, 1794 for Gasoline Tax refund applications, and 1795 for Tobacco Tax refund applications.
No, the refund applications cannot be sent in online as a printed copy must be signed and mailed to the ministry. The refund applications can be completed online (with the tax rates, schedules and calculations automatically provided) then printed or printed and then completed by hand. Blank copies for manual completion can also be requested from the ministry by contacting us at the phone numbers provided in this notice.
Yes, the same information you currently provide is required. You must continue to mail in your supporting records and invoices with the refund applications. Failure to send in the supporting records may delay the processing of your refund.
For help on how to complete a refund application or if you need a paper copy of an application mailed to you, contact us at the phone numbers provided in this notice.
To have your refund deposited directly into your bank account, send us a cheque marked VOID showing your name and address and attach it to your refund application or mail it to the ministry with a letter requesting direct deposit. Remember to quote your Identification Number (Business Number or MFTT Reference Number) on your letter.
To cancel direct deposit, please send a letter to the ministry requesting a cancellation.
