We hope you and your loved ones are doing well and managing your way through these very challenging times. We wanted to reach out to you to let you know that our office remains open and our staff are available to assist you in any way possible. Even though the Federal government has extended the filing deadline for personal income tax returns to June 1st, we are here and ready to help you get your taxes filed now.
Filing your personal income taxes within a similar time frame (in April) as in previous years may be beneficial for a few reasons:
Many of our clients have already provided their 2019 tax documents to our firm and more have provided them electronically through our secure online portal than in the past. Providing your tax documents via the portal allows the confidentiality of the documents to be best protected and can be done from the comfort of your own home. If you haven’t already signed up, our Portal Authorization Form will need to be filled out and sent back to us via email for each individual or entity for which we are setting up a portal.
- to gain access to any income tax refunds you may be getting from the 2019 year;
- to keep your Canada Child Benefit or GST rebate payments up to date; or
- to provide proof of 2019 income to Canada Revenue Agency if applying for government subsidies such as the CERB.
If you are not able to provide them electronically, our building remains open for you to drop off or mail your documents as you would have in previous years.
We look forward to communicating with you soon. If you have any questions whatsoever, please contact one of our team and we would be happy to answer them for you.
Yours in good health,
HLH LLP Chartered Professional Accountants
