What you need for tax return?
You have worked for 365 days in 2013.
During this time the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) has chopped off the Income Tax from your employment income, in every successive biweekly paycheque given to you. The time from March 01, 2014 till April 30, 2014 has been given to you to reclaim as much of your Income Tax kept with the CRA, as you can demonstrate in your Income Tax Returns. The CRA wants your final signature on this document so that what you have successfully claimed is refunded back to you and what has not been claimed is now theirs. That shows how vitally important this little document is to the Canadian Government.
Unless you’re expecting a T3, you should have everything you need to start your 2014 tax return. Before you begin, you should gather all your slips, receipts, and other relevant papers. To make sure you don’t miss something, and to help you get every deduction and credit you can, we’ve prepared this handy checklist. If you prefer, you can also download and print a copy of our Canadian Tax Return Checklist.
