When I do a RAAP [Residential Rehabilitation Assistance Program ] job, I have to bill GST, even though the cheque comes from CMHC, a branch of the Federal government. There is a maximum contract amount, that includes GST. I then declare it and pay it back to Revenue Canada, another dept. of same.
You would think that these are basically a form of Social Assistance and GST is revenue neutral here, it wouldn't be included. Not so.
