The Montreal-based company says CRA has concluded its audit and a re-assessment is expected.
Aimia says it will make the payment using a portion of a $100-million restricted cash account set up as part of the sale of its Aeroplan program.
However, Aimia says once it receives the notice of re-assessment it plans to vigorously contest the case.
Aimia owns and operates the Air Miles Middle East loyalty program and also own stakes in other loyalty programs.
The company completed the sale of its flagship Aeroplan program to a consortium led by Air Canada earlier this year.
