The agency said that if an employee receives a discount on merchandise the amount of the discount should be included in the employee's income tax. There have been no changes to the laws governing taxable benefits to retail employees.
The document was removed by the CRA on Wednesday and is being reviewed by National Revenue Minister Diane Lebouthillier's office.
"This document was not approved by the minister and we are deeply disappointed that the agency posted something that has been misinterpreted like this", John Power, a spokesperson for Minister Lebouthillier, said in a prepared statement.

Canadian Press say the federal government seems ready to do away with the petty policy scheme that would have taxed employees for discounts they get at work.
CRA told The Globe and Mail it didn't believe there would be a great increase in discounts reported on tax returns, adding that if the discount was available to the public, it needn't be treated as taxable income.
The guidance created confusion for employers as it appeared to suggest employee discounts could be off the books as long as they had been available to the general public at some point during the year, says Karl Littler, vice-president of public affairs of the Retail Council of Canada.
The 2016 update to the language around employee discounts is the result of the CRA changing its interpretation of the existing tax law, not a change to the law itself. The update was prompted by the tax court ruling in 2011 that the CRA's old guidance for employers was inaccurate and had to be updated.
However, they say retail sector employers shouldn't expect to find themselves subject to a CRA audit over their reporting on employee benefits.
According to the minister's office, the CRA is pulling the guidance documents down off their website to be reviewed, and once that is completed a new version will be put out for consultation with stakeholders.
