What Tax Season Means for Canadian Accountants

What Tax Season Means for Canadian Accountants

Tax season is a busy time for accountants who specialize in taxation. It is important to know exactly what to expect during tax season in Canada.

Tax Deadlines

In 2020, the tax deadline was extended to the end of September 2020 due to the complications presented by the COVID-19 pandemic. Although the pandemic is ongoing, the 2021 deadline has not been extended.

The exact start date of tax season can be hard to pin down, but the CRA has suggested that people will be able to file their taxes as early as February 22nd, 2021. April 30th, 2021 is the general deadline for filing taxes. Self-employed individuals or people with a spouse or common-law partner who is self-employed have a later deadline of June 15, 2021.

Heavier Workloads

There is no getting around the fact that tax season is going to be a busy time for an accountant and it can also be the most stressful. Long hours are the norm during tax season and that can take its toll on even the most skilled accountant.
