First, confirm that you meet the conditions for a claim:
- Try to determine if your penalty and/or interest is due to a calculation error.

- You must submit your claim within 30 days of the date of your tax return assessment by CRA.
- TurboTax Business Incorporated is excluded from this guarantee.
