Canada War Tax Stamps were issued between April 15, 1915 and December 1916.
The War Tax was added in addition to the rate of postage meaning the stamp carried both its face value and the added WAR TAX. The additional revenue raised was used to defray the costs of war. Canada's first war tax stamps were produced with modified printing dies of the 'Admiral' series, first to read WAR TAX, and later issues read 1T¢.
