    If an income tax return has been processed on this account in the past four working days, additional action may yet occur that could cause the account balance to change. This may include transactions such as:

    • the imposition of a penalty or GIC
    • transfers to other accounts or government agencies
    • adjustments to the annual income tax assessment (where applicable).

    If any of these actions occur, we will notify you of the specific transaction that affected the balance.
