Canadian Income Tax Filing Made Easy
In recent years, the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) has been expanding the methods available for you to file your income taxes. As the digital revolution continues, the agency has focused much of its energy on developing online filing methods. However, traditional means are still available to facilitate your Canada income tax filing.
The CRA has established NETFILE as an online option for filing your Canadian tax return. The CRA has certified the commercial software and the Web application of the program. Also, there exists a number of free software applications for use with NETFILE.
Digital Service Provider
You may employ a service provider to submit your taxes online with the EFILE program to prepare you return. After completing your return, take your forms to a digital service provider to file online for free. This digital platform traditionally results in your return being processed quickly.
Regardless of the nature of your return, every tax filer in Canada has the option of submitting his or her return by post. Simply complete the required forms, and place them in the mail for the cost of a stamp.
If your taxes are complex, if you own a business, or you just don’t feel confident about completing your income tax returns on your own, you may hire an accountant to prepare your taxes.
Whether you are a small business owner who doesn’t have the time to complete your returns or you like the convenience of the Internet, there is an option for you to successfully file your Canadian tax return.
