Are interest on underpaid tax deductible? With other words interest paid to the Receiver for taxation underpaid. Can I include these interest as an expense in my current year. Are they deductible on my tax calculation.

Unfortunately the interest paid on taxes is not tax deductible. The Act prohibits certain expenses and interest and penalties paid on taxes are specifically prohibited.
