CRA: Underused Housing Tax Educational Webinar

The Canada Revenue Agency’s (CRA’s) guidance on the underused housing tax is now available.On June 9, 2022, the Underused Housing Tax Act (UHTA) received Royal Assent, which means that it is now law. Under the UHTA, the annual 1% underused housing tax generally affects non-Canadian, non-resident owners of vacant or underused residential property in Canada, and some Canadian owners in limited situations.

The legislation is part of the Government of Canada’s broader long-term plan to invest in building, repairing and supporting affordable housing units for Canadians.

There are penalties for affected owners that do not file or file late. This new guidance page provides an accessible means for these owners to fulfill their Canadian tax obligations as efficiently as possible. To learn more about the underused housing tax, visit

This webinar will be hosted by a CRA Liaison Officer.

You will receive 1 self-directed professional development credit for attending.
