Tax Return Checklists
We offer our tax services throughout the year to our investment clients. We are not taking on new “Tax Only” clients at this time.
The tax deadline to file a Canadian personal return is April 30. If you are self-employed, the filing deadline is June 15, but late-payment interest will accrue effective May 1. The above deadlines only apply if you have a tax balance owing.
If you have a non-registered account, we request that you wait until after April 1 to drop off your documents. Financial institutions take longer to send in non-registered account tax receipts to CRA. We don’t want to risk filing before all documents have been received.
You can drop off your tax documents by e-mail, fax, or in person at our office. No appointment is necessary to drop off your documents. We require a two-week turnaround to complete your return. Therefore, if you want to be sure your file will be completed by April 30, you should drop off your documents no later than April 15.
