Note re: DABC phones

PLEASE NOTE: DABC has recently moved offices and the phone lines have not yet been connected at the new office. We’re not certain when they will be connected, but will keep everyone updated. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Haven't filed your taxes yet? Call Tax AID DABC!

If you haven’t yet filed your taxes, you can still file your 2019 income tax and benefit return!

The CRA extended the deadline to pay amounts owing to September 1, 2020. Penalties and interest will not be charged if you make your payment by September 1, 2020. This includes the late-filing penalty.

You will continue to receive important payments to help you through the COVID-19 crisis. But if the CRA has not assessed your 2019 return, information from your 2018 return will be used to calculate the benefit and credit payments sent to you until September 2020.
