GST credit for previous year's taxes.

Hi, I recently filed my 2015,16,17,18,19 and 20 taxes I recieved my refunds for the years I was owed and for each year I was able to receive GST. 

My question is how does Backpay/retro active payment work for GST credit. Will it automatically update in mycra account at a later date, do I have to request it? 

On my benefits page it only shows payments for Oct, January and April I believe listed for 2021-2022. Which I believe is only reflecting 2020tax return. 

Thanks any information would be helpful

GST credit for previous year's taxes.

The GST/HST credit is a non-taxable amount paid four times a year to individuals and families with low and modest incomes to help offset the goods and services tax/harmonized sales tax (GST/HST) that they pay.

 

Kindly see below additional information

CRA Information on GST/HST Tax credit 

 

You have up to three years to ask for a retroactive payment. If you have not filed your 2018 and 2019 tax returns within the three-year period, you can send us a request under the taxpayer relief provisions of the Income Tax Act. For more information, go to Taxpayer relief provisions or see Information Circular IC07-1R1, Taxpayer Relief Provisions.
