Impôt des particuliers 2020

Dear Client:

We are pleased to provide a “Personal Income Tax Organizer” form to help you compile the information necessary for preparation of your 2020 income tax return.  Please complete a separate organizer for each individual in your household (who is filing a tax return).

As well, please advise us of any changes to your circumstances – for example changes to address, marital status, phone or email contact info, April vacation plans, etc.

There have been relatively few tax-related changes during the year.  However, we do wish to bring the following to your attention:

  • The climate action incentive has increased modestly for the year.  If you have joint custody of children, arrange in advance who will claim them for purposes of that credit.
  • In light of the pandemic, CRA has provided an alternative method to calculate workplace at home expenses for 2020.  We will need the exact number of days worked from home, excluding any non-working weekends, vacation days or paid sick/other leaves of absence.
  • The new credit advertised by the government, in respect of digital news subscriptions, is effective for 2020.  Please provide related receipts from your provider.

When your information is ready, please send it to our office (or drop it off with reception).  Alternatively, if all your records are electronic, you can email or use the more secure File Share Centre service (a link is in the top right hand corner of our website or below the contact information in emails).

Please note that if documents are delivered to us after April 15, we cannot guarantee that the returns will be filed before the April 30 filing deadline.

We will contact you by telephone if additional details are required and/or once the returns are drafted.

The organizer can be accessed by clicking here.
