➡️ The deadline to file your income tax and benefit return has been extended from April 30th to June 1st, 2020. The deadline to pay any 2019 balance has been extended to August 31st, 2020. This means all 2019 balances paid before September 2020 will not incur any penalties and interest.
➡️ We encourage you to file your income tax and benefit return electronically and as soon as possible to make sure your benefit and credit payments are not interrupted or delayed.
➡️ For self-employed individuals and their spouse/common-law partner, 2019 balances paid before September 2020 will not incur any penalties and interest. Your income tax and benefit returns must still be filed by June 15, 2020.
➡️ Businesses will be allowed to defer until after August 31, 2020, the payment of any income tax amounts that become owing on or after today and before September 2020. We will not contact any small or medium businesses to initiate any post assessment GST/HST or Income Tax audits for the next 4 weeks.
➡️ The due date for trusts with a tax year ending December 31, 2019 will be extended to May 1, 2020. Trust payments due before August 31, 2020 are also all extended to August 31, 2020. Anything not covered by this measure will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
