When to File Your Taxes

Each year many Canadians rush to complete their taxes in an effort to gain back hard earned dollars that CRA has been holding onto - interest free.

However, in this rush many Canadians forget to include many important tax slips, and this can cause subsequent costly re-assessments.  In this technological age, CRA is receiving information directly on a digital basis for reporting. Mistakes are getting caught sooner, and more frequently.
