During the first few months of the year, it’s time to think about your Canadian tax return.

This article will introduce you to some of the basic concepts and will be useful to anyone who is filing a Canadian tax return for the first time, or otherwise finds the process a bit confusing.

The good news is, if you’ve overpaid tax during the year, then you could be due a refund! The tax calculator for Canada accompanying this article can help you figure out how much you could receive.

Organizing your Canadian tax return

The Canadian tax year runs from January 1 to December 31. Employees receive a tax summary document, known as a T4, from their employers, usually in January or February the following year. Make sure your employer has your correct address on file so they can mail your T4 to you.

The deadline for filing your Canadian tax return is April 30, though it’s recommended to file as early as possible so as to avoid last-minute stress. If you’re due a refund, then this should arrive within eight weeks.

You will usually need to pay three different types of taxes:

  • Income tax
  • CPP (Canadian Pension Plan)
  • EI (Employer Insurance)

Your T4 will outline how much you have already paid.

Taxes are collected by the Canadian Revenue Agency, or CRA. You will need to know what your residency status is before filing, i.e. whether you are a resident or a non-resident. Taxback.com can help you figure out your residency status if you’re unsure.

If it’s your first time filing, you must complete a paper Canadian tax return and mail it to the CRA. You can collect these forms, known as a T1, from any Canada Post office. If you haven’t got time for this, you can do it all online with Taxback.com, that’s right, you can fill out your info and they’ll apply straight to the CRA.

Check for any deductions you can include, for example, eligible transit and healthcare expenses, or rent costs in Ontario. You can use these to reduce your assessable income, and therefore your tax liability.

Additionally, you may be eligible for the GST/HST credit if your income is below a certain level. It varies from province to province, and you can calculate what may be owed to you here. In British Columbia, it’s combined with the provincial Low Income Climate Action Tax Credit.

Canada Revenue Agency tweaks tax return process — here’s what to know

The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) announced Monday that it is changing the way thousands of citizens will file their tax and benefit returns this year.

About 950,000 Canadians with low or fixed incomes will be eligible for the CRA’s new “File my Return” automated service, Minister of National Revenue Diane Lebouthillier, explained in a press release.

The individuals will be able to file their tax return, as long as it is unchanged year-to-year, by answering short questions and giving some personal information by telephone. They will not need to make any calculations or fill out paper forms, but will still be able to see what deductions, benefits and credits they can receive.

Those who are eligible for the service will be notified with letters by mid-February. The service will run every day from 6 a.m. to 3 a.m. ET during tax-filing season.

WATCH: Halifax man in months-long fight with CRA to get refund

The CRA also announced Monday that those who filed their returns directly by mail in past years will receive the “General Income Tax and Benefit Guide,” and other forms in the mail this year. In previous years, Canadians have had to pick up the tax package from a Canada Post, Service Canada, or Caisse populaire Desjardins outlet.

The agency noted that some forms (in both official languages) will still be available at these locations starting Feb.26, in case they are needed. But starting in 2020, all forms will be mailed from the CRA.

WATCH: Canadians pay on average 42.5 per cent of their income in taxes, report finds

Canadians who do not receive the package in the mail by Feb. 26 can order them online, or call the CRA at 1-855-330-3305 (1-855-330-3310 for French service).

The changes for this year’s tax return process come amid criticism that many Canadians face barriers at tax time. For example, a 2020 study found that Indigenous Canadians may skip filing taxes due to reasons such as lack of understanding of the system, and the costs associated with filing (paying an accountant or travelling to an accountant’s offices, for instance).

In November 2020, an auditor general report found that Canadians with tax questions are more likely to get a busy signal than talk to a tax agent when they call the CRA.

The report found that the CRA blocks more than half of the calls to its nine call centres because it can’t handle the volume. People whose calls are blocked hear a busy signal or a message to visit the website or call back later.

WATCH: Morneau announces increase to working income tax benefit

While the latest changes may not resolve these concerns, Lebouthillier explained in the press release that making tax filing easier for Canadians is her “top priority,” especially for those who face reduced mobility, don’t have internet or live far from service centres.

“The CRA is working to make it easier and simpler to find, complete and file a return. The new services we are now providing are more user-friendly and convenient, especially for Canadians with low or fixed income.”

Canadian Tax Tips

? How do I know if I need to file a Canadian tax return?

As per the Canadian Tax legislation, you must file a tax return if any of the following situations apply:

  • You have to pay tax.
  • Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) sent you a request to file a return
  • You and your spouse or common-law partner elected to split pension income
  • You received Working Income Tax Benefit (WITB) advance payments
  • You have to contribute to the Canada Pension Plan (CPP)
  • You are paying Employment Insurance premiums on self-employment and other eligible earnings

Even if none of these requirements apply, you may still want to file a return if any of the following situations apply:

  • You want to claim a refund
  • You want to claim the WITB.
  • You want to apply for the GST/HST credit (including any related provincial credit).
  • You or your spouse or common-law partner want to begin or continue receiving Canada Child Tax Benefit payments
  • You want to carry forward or transfer the unused part of your tuition, education, and textbook amounts

? When do I have to file my Canadian tax return?

There are a number of dates during the year when Canadian tax returns are due to be filed or payments are due to be paid:
Income tax return
Generally, your return for the current tax year has to be filed on or before April 30, next year

Self-employed persons

If you or your spouse or common-law partner ran a business in the current tax year (other than a business whose expenditures are primarily in connection with a tax shelter), your current year return has to be filed on or before June 15 the next year. However, if you have a balance owing, you still have to pay it on or before April 30, next year.

? Will I get a tax refund?

You may. We find that one in three Canadian citizens or residents have overpaid tax and is eligible to claim a tax refund.Taxback.com will get you back as much overpaid Canadian tax as is legally possible.

You can get a refund if you:

  • had too much tax withheld;
  • paid more installments than necessary; or
  • claimed more refundable credits than the total taxes you owed.

The average refund we get for our Canadian tax clients is $904.

? When can I expect my tax refund?

Once we get your documents it takes us a couple of days to prepare your Canadian tax return. This involves:

  • Receiving and checking the documents
  • Estimating your refund
  • Completing your forms
  • Sending them to the tax office / Preparing your return

Download, sign and send it back to us.

? What slips or documentation am I likely to have for filing a tax return?

Slips or documentation are prepared by your employer, payer, or administrator. You should have received most of your slips and receipts by the end of February the year after the employment. If you have not received, or have lost or misplaced a slip for the current year, you have to ask your employer, or the issuer of the slip, for a copy.
The following is a list of some of the slips you may receive:

  • T4, Statement of Remuneration Paid
  • T4A, Statement of Pension, Retirement, Annuity, and Other Income
  • T4A(OAS), Statement of Old Age Security
  • T4A(P), Statement of Canada Pension Plan Benefits
  • T4E, Statement of Employment Insurance and Other Benefits
  • T4RSP, Statement of RRSP Income
  • T5007, Statement of Benefits
  • RC62, Universal Child Care Benefit statement
  • RC210, Working Income Tax Benefit Advance Payments Statement

? What is a final payslip?

We can use either your final payslip or your T4 to claim back Canadian tax for you. Your final payslip is the payslip attached to your last pay cheque. It shows your earnings and how much tax you’ve paid.
If you don’t have your final payslip or your T4, our document retrieval team can help get copies for you.

? I can’t find my Social Insurance Number — what can I do?

To claim your Canadian tax rebate we’ll need your Social Insurance Number so called your Canadian tax number. If you don’t have it, ask your employer or slip preparer as they should have a record of your number.
Alternatively, you can contact Service Canada to confirm your SIN.

? Can I do it myself?

Every tax office in the world is set up to accept applications directly from taxpayers so yes, you can file your return yourself. The reality is though once you submit it, there’s no updating process and no feedback until you get a yes or a no, which is frustrating and very worrying.
Preparing your Canadian tax return will involve getting all the tax forms and trying to put all the information together properly and it’s not as easy as it looks.
The tax system in Canada is very complex and filing their own tax return is a challenge that many Canadian citizens don’t even attempt themselves. With our service, you can rest assured that your tax return is correct and above all, compliant. You can also check if you’re due a tax refund by using the FREE online refund calculator

? What’s the difference between filing my tax return and getting my tax refund?

We file your Canadian tax return in order to organise your tax refund.
A tax return is the annual submission of tax forms documenting your earnings, taxes paid, deductable expenses and allowances that you send to the tax office for review. They review it according to the information submitted by your employer and the current laws that apply to your case.
If you get a tax refund, this means the tax office review found you had overpaid tax and were due some back.
Our estimate of your refund is based on our prediction of what the tax office will decide when they review your tax return — providing they have the same information as us.

? Can you guarantee that I’ll receive the refund amount you estimated for me?

No, but we do guarantee to get you the most money back that we legally can.
Our estimate is based on your documents and our experience in filing thousands of tax returns every week since 1996. Naturally, the Canadian tax authority has the final decision in your tax refund based on their systems and tax codes.

Posted in How To Guide

So you decided on coming to beautiful Canada and you’re either currently working at your Working Holiday City Job, Working Holiday Resort Job, or have just finished your program. You may have even been initially surprised by the idea or concept of “paying taxes” here in Canada. You may not have ever experienced anything like that back home. Here in Canada, you need to pay taxes on things such as goods, services, and even on the money that you make at your job! You may feel like that’s a lot of money to give to the government but fret not – you may be able to get some of your money back through a Canadian tax refund! A little known fact is that the average Canadian tax return is around $904 CAD. Now that’s a lot of money that you can put to use elsewhere. Generally speaking, there are a few ways you can claim a tax refund from the Canadian government on your income. Keep reading to find out how to apply for your Canadian tax refund!

Option 1: File It Yourself With Canada Revenue Agency

Although it may seem difficult or complicated to do it yourself, it’s actually quite simple if you take your time and follow these steps carefully.

Step 1: Find Out Your Canadian Res >If you are participating in one of our Working Holiday Programs through International Experience Canada (IEC), you will most likely be considered a “non-resident” to the Canadian government. However, it’s important to note that if you have been living in Canada for more than 6 months during the tax year, you’re allowed to file your tax return as a “resident”. If you are still in Canada, you can call: 1-800-267-5177 to get in touch with the International Tax Services Office to make sure and to check and see if your home country has a tax treaty with Canada – which may in turn affect your income tax status.

Step 2: Get Your Canadian T4 Form(s)

You need to get a form called a “T4” form from each of your employer, which they are legally required to give you. These forms are usually sent out to you by your employer between January and March of the next year. If you’ve worked for more than 1 employer during the same year, please be sure that you get forms from both of them. Be sure to provide each employer with your mailing address so that you can receive your T4 forms in time to file your Canadian income tax return by April 30th.

Step 3: Get the Income Tax Forms

The forms that you will need to file your tax return can be found at any Canada Post location. The forms will also come with a step-by-step gu >here .

The tax package for Canadian non-residents will include the following:

  • Schedule 1 Federal Tax, and the 428 form for the province where you worked
  • Schedule A (under Non-Res >If you qualify as a Canadian resident for taxation purposes, you only need: Schedule 1 and Form 428

Step 4: Fill Out Your Tax Forms

You will fill out your tax forms according to the instructions included in the tax form package. If you are still unsure of what to do, you can also hire an accountant to fill out the forms for you for a small fee. The fees usually cost anywhere from between $40CAD to $60CAD. If you have access to a computer, you can also use a tax preparation software such as TurboTax.

Step 5: Mail Out Your Completed Tax Package

Your final step is to send completed forms, along with the original copies of your T4 slips, to:

International Tax Services Office
102A 2204 Walkley Road
Ottawa, Ontario
K1A 1A8, Canada

Option 2: Use A Service Like Taxback
