OTTAWA, Ont. – According to the Canadian Trucking Alliance, the Canada Customs and Revenue Agency (CCRA) is about to increase the daily receipt-free meal allowance for drivers. A court case in Winnipeg involving trucker Don Wilkinson led to the judge questioning whether the current limit is reasonable, particularly for drivers who travel to the U.S. Subsequent to the court decision, CTA staff held several meetings with CCRA to help build the case for an upward revision to the daily rate, which hasn’t been changed since 1991 when it was pegged at 50 per cent of $33/day. A CCRA policy committee is currently studying three options; a decision is expected late April/early May and will apply to the entire 2002 tax year.
