Last year was different. The federal government extended the business tax filing and payment deadlines.
It doesn’t look like the CRA will extend the business tax filing deadlines again this year. In fact, they’re urging you to file earlier than usual. Especially if you signed up for any COVID-19 programs for your business.
We know, it’s no fun to think about filing deadlines – it’s literally the opposite of fun. But what if we gave you an infographic that includes important tax deadlines and features our national mascot?
We promise it will make staying on top of those pesky deadlines a little less painful.
