Filing Your Taxes

How to Get Started

The process of filing yearly taxes is often unique to each Canadian.

When filing taxes, whether independently or with the assistance of a professional tax specialist, having all your personal information available is essential. The CRA requires taxpayers to report the entirety of their income, any relevant deductions, and the details of any dependents if necessary.

It’s important for Canadians to understand what they can and cannot claim on their taxes to avoid a tax audit by the CRA. With a CRA tax help specialist by your side, you can feel confident knowing your taxes are being filed according to federal guidelines.

Adjusting Your Tax Return

It’s not uncommon to find errors in your CRA tax forms even after they’ve been filed. The good news is the CRA affords taxpayers the opportunity to adjust tax returns filed up to 10 years ago. This process is relatively simple as forms can be obtained directly from the CRA’s website.

Common Myths to Avoid

When it comes to filing your taxes, there are common myths that taxpayers are exposed to and must be wary of when engaging in their own financial business, including:

Higher Tax Bracket Means Losing More to Taxes

The reality is that tax brackets are marginal which means that substantially higher rates apply to each dollar above the cut-off.

All Investment Incomes are Taxes Equally

If you have various investment incomes, it’s important to differentiate between them as they may not all be taxed equally. A tax specialist can assist you in determining which are contributing to your income and the most effective ways to reduce your taxes and improve your financial portfolio.

The Rich Have Secret Ways to Avoid Higher Taxes

The secret is that there is no secret — financial systems were designed for those in higher tax brackets and offer more loopholes and easy ways to pay higher sums in taxes.

When to file taxes in Canada

In Canada, income taxes are required to be submitted by April 30 with details pertaining to your income from the previous calendar year. The CRA may accept late submissions on a case-by-case basis, though there may be a penalty.

What are the types of taxes I need to file?

There are four types of income taxes Canadians should be aware of when it comes time to file:

  • Personal
  • Business
  • Corporation
  • Trust

Each tax type relates to a specific area of income and includes a range of deduction and claim options. A Faris CPA’s tax help centre, we can assist you in understanding where you should focus your attention and the types of documents and details you’ll need to effectively file your income tax.

Why is it important to file taxes?

Your taxes are an important part of your contribution to Canada’s economy and filing yearly taxes allows the CRA to determine if you’re eligible for any returns or if you’re required to pay back a specified amount to the government.

When taxes are not filed properly, there are significant penalties attached, including financial late filing penalties, not receiving certain benefits such as Old Age Security, and, in severe cases, can lead to prosecution.

With the assistance of an accounting and taxation expert at Faris CPA, you can avoid all the above and secure your financial standing.

How to prepare to file your taxes

“Need someone who can talk CRA and walk tax law stuff? I did. After an expensive year of trying to resolve a CRA issue on my own – I was very happy to have Sam Faris in the ring with me. I am confident that no lawyer or CA could have prepared a stronger case report to support my appeal. Sam approached my case professionally and skillfully from all angles possible and personally made sure I understood exactly what was going on; every step of the way.”
