    Federal tax collector can't take money and run: Top court - Calgary Herald

    The Supreme Court of Canada has ordered the federal tax collector to reimburse United Parcel Service $3 million that the courier company overpaid in GST.

    In a 9-0 ruling, the court concluded Thursday that the government is not entitled to a windfall simply because UPS mistakenly overpaid the tax in 1996-97.
