Our thoughts are with you and your families during the unprecedented situation surrounding COVID-19. We hope you and your loved ones are doing well and staying safe.
We would like to assure you that we are staying on top of changing circumstances and will do our best to keep the public apprised of any essential information as it applies to your tax filings. With that in mind, please be aware that the Canadian Government has announced today that it is extending the tax filing deadline for anyone who has yet to file. The new filing deadline is June 1, 2020. In addition, the deadline to pay off any outstanding balances interest-free will also be extended, this time to July 31, 2020. Furthermore, taxpayers will be allowed to defer tax payments until after Aug. 31, 2020 for any amounts that are due after today and before September.
As you are aware, the situation is rapidly evolving with new announcements and government responses being rolled out daily. Our team is monitoring the situation closely and will continue to keep you informed as more information becomes available.
In order to do our part and help avoid the spread of the COVID-19 virus, we are limiting in-person meetings. However, we are still available for video chat or phone calls. In fact, your personal taxes can be filed completely virtual by us. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the CPA Plus team directly at (613) 413-8272. We are also taking advantage of the extended deadline to reduce office capacity until April 5th. Please be advised that email responses may be a bit delayed during this time, but we will do our best to get back to you promptly.
