Some Self-Employed Canadians Need to Pay Back All Their CERB, Government Says

Some self-employed Canadians may have to pay back as much as $14,000 received from the Canadian Emergency Response Benefit (CERB) due to a lack of clear wording on the requirements to qualify for the benefit, according to a new letter sent out by the CRA.

The letter, which was mailed out to at least 200,000 Canadians in the last month, is directed toward individuals who the CRA believes did not meet the requirement of having made at least $5,000 in net income in 2019 in order to qualify for the CERB.
