Personal Tax

In Canada, filling income taxes is a requirement especially if you owe taxes, are self-employed, would like to split your pension income with your spouse/common-law partner, participated in the Home Buyers’ Plan (HBP) or Lifelong Learning Plan (LLP) or even disposed capital property.

Every year the deadline to file your personal tax return is April 30th and if it falls on a weekend, Canada Revenue Agency will consider the return filed on time if it is received the following business day. It is also important to note that if you owe taxes the payment is also due by April 30th and payments made after this date will result in interest and penalties thereafter. If you cannot pay the full amount by April 30th, you should still file your return to avoid the late filing penalty by filing your return on time.
