(NEW - June 2012) Important Notice to All Non-Canadian Resident Shareholders The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) has recently changed how the tax withholding rate applied to dividend payments made to non-residents is determined.
CRA now requires certification of residency, among other things, from each shareholder so that the tax treaty rate can continue to be applied to their TD dividends. Previously, the tax withholding rate was determined solely by the address on the account, with preferred tax treaty rates being applied to persons resident in countries which have a tax treaty with Canada. Typically the tax treaty rate for non-Canadian residents is 15% (although other rates can apply in certain circumstances). The non-tax treaty withholding rate is 25%.
Letters of explanation along with the CRA Form NR301 - Declaration of Eligibility for Benefits Under a Tax Treaty For A Non-Resident Taxpayer are being sent to all non-resident registered TD shareholders by our local stock transfer agents who are responsible for maintaining this information on the share account records.
It is important that you complete and return the form as soon as possible so that your TD share dividends continue to receive the preferred tax treaty withholding rate. If the transfer agents do not receive your completed CRA Form NR301, they will be required under Canadian law to withhold at the maximum rate of 25% on any TD dividend payments due to you, potentially beginning with the TD dividends payable on or after July 31, 2012. You should also be aware that we are now required to re-certify non-resident status every third year or earlier, if there is a change in your eligibility for the declared treaty benefits. You are required to let TD Shareholder Relations or our local transfer agents know if there has been a change to the information provided on your CRA Form NR301.
If you are a registered shareholder and have any questions, please contact the local stock transfer agent as indicated in the letter you receive. Contact information is also available below:
