Alberta Indian Tax Exemption card to be eliminated

August 31, 2021

With the support of First Nations leaders, as of October 4, 2021, the Alberta government will be discontinuing the Alberta Indian Tax Exemption (AITE) card. It will begin accepting the federal Certificate of Indian Status card as the sole proof of eligibility required by AITE retailers when First Nations customers purchase tax-exempt fuel and tobacco on-reserve. 

AITE retailers who purchase products with tax included will continue to submit a refund claim to government. As of January 2021, there were 115 registered AITE retail locations representing 99 unique legal entities in Alberta.
