Tax Assistance in Vancouver During Coronavirus Pandemic (COVID-19)

During the coronavirus pandemic, we are accepting new tax clients in our Vancouver office. We are able to safely process tax returns using our online portal with bank level security. This allows our clients to securely upload and download tax documents remotely. Alternatively, clients can drop their information off in person through our mailbox (at our front door -unit 355-2184 West Broadway, Vancouver, BC), the building is open Monday-Saturday 8:30 am-6 pm. If you call and get the voicemail, we will return your call promptly. The Canada Revenue Agency is temporarily (from March 18, 2020-August 31, 2020) enabling electronic signatures for T183 forms (Information Return for Electronic Filing of Individual’s Income Tax and Benefit Returns), and T183 CORP (Information Return for Corporations filing Electronically). The Canada Revenue Agency has made the following tax filing extensions to assist Canadians who may be experiencing hardships:
  • For individuals (other than trusts), the return filing due date will be deferred until June 1, 2020. However, the Agency encourages individuals who expect to receive benefits under the GSTC or the Canada Child Benefit not to delay the filing of their return to ensure their entitlements for the 2020-21 benefit year are properly determined.
  • For trusts having a taxation year ending on December 31, 2019, the return filing due date will be deferred until May 1, 2020.
  “The Canada Revenue Agency will allow all taxpayers to defer, until after August 31, 2020, the payment of any income tax amounts that become owing on or after today and before September 2020. This relief would apply to tax balances due, as well as instalments, under Part I of the Income Tax Act. No interest or penalties will accumulate on these amounts during this period.” Please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
