I was not aware of the posting as I am new on this forum. Is there a posting of the revised version? I was only trying to give people a heads up since the end of the month is here and the Ontario Revenue Agents will start enforcing laws that look like a pile of poop but are really a jelly donut.

Or perhaps your just stirring the pot as it's available here also!

All this started last September 30th...2007.....such as why the definitions are referred to OREG 445/07

Which is the 455 Regulation passed in Ontario for 2007.
Above is merely a suggestion/thought and in no way constitutes legal advice or views of my employer. www.OHTA.ca
