The Canada Revenue Agency says it will be sending e-notifications about uncashed cheques to 25,000 Canadians this month.
The federal agency said it has approximately $1.4 billion worth of uncashed cheques in its coffers that have accumulated over the years, with some dating back to 1998.
Another 25,000 Canadians will receive e-notifications in November, followed by 25,000 more in May 2023.
The CRA launched a campaign in February 2020 to get Canadians to cash their cheques and said it has so far returned more than $800 million back to taxpayers.
The CRA said Canadians can check if they have uncashed payments by logging in to or signing up for an online CRA account.
