Legal definition of a formal objection

Hello all

Perhaps David or anybody with legal expertise can explain the legal definition of the term

Formal Objection

This is in regards to the Disabilty tax credit. Would a letter sent by registered mail asking for an objection be a formal objection, or would it have to be the official form sent to the appeal supervisor at the CRA ?

Thank you all and keep up the good fight for your rights.

An objection made in writing. Would send by registered mail and fax-myself

A formal objection for the Disability Tax Credit means that you file the official Notice of Objection Form (T400). You can see it discussed on our page about the disability tax credit and you can download the form there as well: The Disability Tax Credit: Your Online Guide for 2023

You may be able to do just a written letter, but I always encourage people to use appeal or objection forms provided by the various government agencies so you don’t miss any of the required information necessary for them to accept the objection or appeal.
