UFile believes that smarter tax filing starts with a better conversation. Discover, learn and share all there is to know when it comes to your taxes. Let's talk tax.

 

Yes you can. Weekly or monthly public transit passes qualify for the credit. Be sure to hold on to your receipts in case the CRA ask for them.

 

This depends on whether or not you have tax to pay. If you don’t owe taxes, you won’t pay penalties. The CRA will keep your refund and you won’t receive any of the credits you’re entitled to. If you owe taxes, expect penalty charges and daily interest on any unpaid tax.

 

Sure, you can file 2014, 2015 and 2016 with NETFILE. For Quebec, you can only NETFILE the current tax year.

 

You can. But it’s not as much fun. Besides, using NETFILE ensures that you get a confirmation when you tax return is received and get your refund faster!

 

Absolutely but, you should keep any slips or supporting documents for six years in case the CRA selects your return for review.

 

The short answer: probably not. If you do get audited, the CRA is just making sure that what you've reported is 100% accurate. Remember to keep all supporting documents for six years in case the CRA selects your return for review.

 

If your new home is at least 40 kilometres closer to your new job you can claim eligible moving expenses, especially handy if your new job is in a different city.

 

Before you file your return this year you need to let the CRA (and RQ if you’re from Quebec) know about the change. You can do this online through My Account, by mail or over the phone. http://www.cra-arc.gc.ca/tx/ndvdls/tpcs/ncm-tx/chngddrss-eng.html and http://www.revenuquebec.ca/en/sepf/services/sgp_adresse/default.aspx

Last-Minute Filer? Ask Yourself These 5 Questions

With the May 1st deadline for income tax return filing only days away, meeting that deadline might feel overwhelming. However, knowing what information to gather and which tools to use can make last-minute filing manageable, and even easy.

 

Not a problem. Sign into the CRA’s My Account service and it will tell you everything you need to know.

 

That depends. Many people enjoy receiving a tax refund, but getting a tax refund just means you've paid too much throughout the year.

 

The burning question! The average refund in Canada is $1,600. What are you waiting for?

 

The CRA generally takes as little as eight business days to process returns filed using NETFILE. Filing by paper can take four to six weeks.

QUESTIONS

Each Canadian files a separate tax return regardless of marital status. However, you have to have certain basic information about your spouse on your return, such as name, SIN and their Net Income. We recommend you produce your tax returns together with a program like UFile in order to maximize any credit transfers allowed under the tax code (donations, pension income,medical expenses etc…). By doing this, you optimize the combined result of your tax return. Who doesn’t want more money in their pockets?

Auto-Fill My Return

Auto-Fill My Return

Auto-fill my return (AFR) is a secure service from the CRA that allows you to automatically download the information from most tax slips directly into your UFile tax return.

 

First of all, congratulations! You have to declare your change in marital status right away by phone, online through My Account, or by mail through the RC65 form. When you file your tax return, you must indicate your marital status change as well with a program like UFile.

 

If you can’t pay the taxes you owe right away, don’t delay and contact the CRA as soon as possible. If you don’t pay, the CRA will charge interest on a daily basis on any amount you owe until it is paid in full. Make sure you also file on time so you don’t add penalties to your interest charges. Ignoring the problem will not make it go away.
