Recommended Posts

Tax season starts tomorrow! Hope you guys are ready.

The 2018 tax filing season will run from Feb 26, 2018 - April 30, 2018. The CRA will have extended hours with regards tax enquiries.

Some of the new things this year:

  • if you get an invite, you may be able to do your taxes over the phone (that's a wow, even for me)
  • a nurse practitioner can now certify a DTC (Disability Tax Credit) certificate

Some changes on tax credits and amounts:

  • As of January 1, 2017, the federal education and textbook credits were eliminated.
  • As of January 1, 2017, the children’s arts tax credit and children’s fitness tax credit were eliminated.
  • As of July 1, 2017, the public transit tax credit was eliminated.

For the newbies. You can use Simple Tax.  It's a donation based program you can use and is super easy.  There's a few similar ones but we find this does what we need to.
