Past Year’s Tax Return

If you have not filed Canadian income tax returns for a number of years there is no reason to be worried about severe penalties. For various reasons you may not have filed your federal income tax return for this year or previous years because you may not have known that you were required to file. ​

You also may not have filed because you owe additional tax that you could not afford to pay in full or because you think you might receive a refund and just have not taken the time to complete the return. Regardless of your reason for not filing, you should file your tax return as soon as possible. Call us and we will help you. ​
