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.
