A reminder that 2013 Tax Returns must be filed on or before April 30, 2014.

If you file your return after April 30, 2014, your GST/HST credit (including any related provincial credit), Canada child tax benefit payments (including certain related provincial or territorial payments), and old age security benefit payments may be delayed.

If you owe tax for 2013 and do not file your return for 2013 on time, you will be charged you a late-filing penalty. The penalty is 5% of your 2013 balance owing, plus 1% of your balance owing for each full month your return is late, to a maximum of 12 months.

CRA will waive or cancel the penalty and any interest that applies if you file your return late because of circumstances beyond your control. If this happens, complete Form RC4288, Request for Taxpayer Relief, and mail it to the Winnipeg Tax Centre at 66 Stapon Road.

    They actually extended it to May 5th this year due to Heartbleed:

    “Recognizing that the service interruption lasted five days, the Minister of National Revenue has announced that interest and penalties will not be applied to individual taxpayers filing their 2013 tax returns after April 30, 2014 for a period equal to the length of this service interruption. This means individual tax returns for 2013 filed on or before May 5, 2014 will not incur interest or penalties.”
