It is officially tax season, this year’s tax season deadline for most people is April 30, 2020. In preparation, you should gather everything you need to calculate your income and support any credits, deductions and expenses you’ll claim. Some common slips include:
- T3 Statement of Trust Income Allocation and Designations
- T4 Statement of Remuneration Paid
- T5 Statement of Investment Income
If you have a modest income and simple tax situation, volunteers at free tax clinics may be able to do your taxes for you, in person, for free. They happen between March and April across Canada at agencies such as Immigrant Services Calgary, Centre for Newcomers, Calgary Immigrant Women’s Association, Calgary Public Library, and etc.
