Note re: tax filing/GST

If you haven’t filed your 2019 income taxes yet, don’t panic! Your GST will be processed based on the 2018 tax year.

The CRA has provided the following info:

  • Due to the change in the tax deadline from April 30 to June 1, 2020, we expect many will need to take advantage of the extended deadline. Therefore, if the 2019 tax return is not assessed, and to allow time to calculate benefits and/or credits for the July to September 2020 payments, payment amounts will be based on information from 2018 tax returns.
  • If you receive an estimated benefit and/or credit payment based on your 2018 tax return(s), you’re still required to file your 2019 income tax return.
