You can also download tax receipts from previous years.​

As of September 2015, it became possible for pro-rated refunds if you downgraded your registration status to non-practising or inactive. Because the total amount you pay may vary throughout the year, your tax receipt is now only available after the current calendar year ends.

​Your CRNBC tax receipt includes the total annual amount paid for registration and r​​​​eflects refunds received during the year. ​
